The White Embden goose is the quintessential domestic goose with a snowy white body and orange beak and feet. This is also one of the largest goose species, with ganders reaching about 30 pounds, and its large size making it especially popular among meat-production farmers. These large geese are also great mothers and males and females will both protect their nests from predators. The White Embden goose can also be vocal, particularly males, and though they are not usually social, they are not aggressive nor territorial to their owners or other pets they are raised with.
This cute little trio is growing very quickly. They are very sweet, and love to cuddle under your neck. I ordered these cuties, in addition to 3 blue slate turkey poults, and close to 40 chickens (various egg-laying breeds). I was sent several extras of varying types as a precaution for shipping, but it was unnecessary. Every single chicken, turkey, and goose that I ordered arrived in fantastic health! I am SO, SO pleased with Cackle Hatchery, especially as this was my very first ever mail order. I will most definitely remain a loyal customer for life, and I will recommend them to everyone! Thanks again for such wonderful service. (And please feel free to link this review to any of the other birds from my order) (Posted on 5/19/2017)
