White Chinese

The White Chinese goose is smaller than the Embden or Toulouse. They are talkative, like their Brown Chinese cousins. The most distinguishing characteristic of this breed, is its raised knob on its head. The White Chinese is one of the most prolific egg laying geese available. Laying well into in the fall and even winter, most Chinese geese lay 50-60 eggs per year but may produce as many as 100 eggs per year.  Their alertness makes them perfect to notify you of intruders. Best known for their excellent weeding due to their size, agility, and love of grass, they make excellent grazers and are often used for weeding commercial crops. They weigh 11-15 pounds full grown. As goslings, they have yellow down feathers, with orange bill, feet, and legs.
