American Buff

The American Buff is a rare domestic goose developed in North America from Graylag goose of Europe and Northern Asia. This breed is a beautiful apricot-fawn color, sporting buff-colored feathers on its back that fade to a creamy white. Their feet, legs, and bill are orange, but its legs may fade to pink during laying or when green grass is not available. This hardy dual-purpose goose is known to be a good parent and take good care of their young. It is very calm natured and friendly. It would make a great addition to a flock on a family farm. American Buff geese weigh 14 to16 pounds at maturity and lay approximately 25-35 large white eggs a year. Goslings have buff to golden down feathers and pink legs, feet and beak.
