Brown Chinese geese originated in China, descending from the wild Asiatic Swan goose. Weighing only eight to ten pounds as mature adults, Brown Chinese geese are the smallest breed of geese we offer. Brown Chinese are the most prolific egg laying geese and are known to lay in the fall and even winter. Most Brown Chinese geese lay 50-60 eggs, but may produce up to 100 eggs per year. These geese are known to be more talkative, which makes them perfect to alert you of intruders. Best known for their excellent weeding, their size, agility, and love of grass, they make excellent grazers and are often used for commercial crops. As goslings, Brown Chinese have dark grey to buff-colored down feathers with dark beak, legs, and feet.
