- Toulouse Geese
The Toulouse goose is a large, stout goose raised for its heavy weight, moderate egg production and striking physical attributes. The Toulouse goose is often raised for meat, particularly its historic purpose, pate foie gras. Laying between 25 and 40 eggs a year and growing quickly to between 14 lbs - 18 lbs, Toulouse geese are popular among hobby farmers, family farms and small commercial farms. Cackle Hatchery's® flock of toulouse geese are a production type and not the exhibition type that have the pronounced dewlap, keel and size.

Great breed! Review by Sara
These geese are just lovely. They will bond with you and follow you around. They are not aggressive and live well with chickens, ducks, and other farm animals. They are beautiful and peaceful. (Posted on 11/6/2019)
Excellent lovely geese Review by Molli
I ordered 3 geese, two females and a male. They arrived with one of them having it's head stuck between the cardboard divider and the lid. It spent it's first few days unable to stand or walk, with the first 6 hours or so unable to straighten it's neck. I contacted Cackle, but unfortunately we were never able to line up schedules for a phone call. The gosling did recover, and was able to eat and drink normally, only to die mysteriously 2 months later. The remaining two geese are very friendly and healthy, with the gander tugging on my pants whenever I go to feed and water them. They're a beautiful set, and they talk to each other whenever I'm in the pen with them. The gander has a huge 'apron' and the end of his beak has a white spot, where the female has a black spot. I would like to note that I received around 60 birds in the same crate and ALL of them were healthy and suffered no shipping related losses. (Posted on 11/6/2019)

Toulouse Geese Review by Stacey
I ordered 4 Toulouse goslings, and they arrived on time and very healthy. It was so fun interacting with them as they grew. They are 8 months now and are big, beautiful birds. Love them! (Posted on 11/5/2019)
very satisfied Review by Dave from Missouri
I have had my 6 Toulouse goslings for 3 weeks now. They are growing extremely fast. They are about 1 foot tall and long. I have been feeding them gamebird feed and grass. I will recommend this breed to anyone wanting geese and Cackle Hatchery for all poultry orders. Thanks. (Posted on 5/24/2017)
