- White Embden Geese
This snowy white goose is what most people see when they think of a domestic goose. With a stout, round body, graceful neck and round head, the White Embden goose grows quickly and reaches a large size. With females at about 20 pounds and males at about 30, they are very popular among meat-production farmers. These geese will protect their nests and their territory from predators, making them easy to breed, but are not overly territorial towards owners or other pets.
We can not ship geese to Hawaii.

4 month review Review by huff&puff acres, missouri ozarks
I got 2 of these geese I lost one to a dog attack. which made me extremely angry.. I got them for guard geese for my chickens. I had let them out of the pen to free range when it was attacked.. I love these birds full of character and quite sassy they will follow you around like a puppy and they seem to enjoy going for walks all the time running that mouth.. very fun birds to have. I do understand that in order to use them as guard geese you should only have one though and they do sound off when upset. that is the way they are used as guards they are not fighters they can not defend your chickens their job is to alert you something is wrong (Posted on 8/15/2019)
Beautiful healthy birds every batch Review by Mammieshute
We've been getting birds from cackle for almost 4 years now. These geese are some of the most beautiful ones we've gotten. We've had chics of many breeds , keets of all the colors , ducklings of many breeds , turkeys of many breeds. Three next birds I plan to have are peafowl. Thank you for your help and such beautiful birds. (Posted on 8/17/2018)
Champion Geese Review by Merrilllangs Poultry
We ordered 16 embden goslings for our fair. Our daughters took Grand Champion and Reserve champion!! We will be ordering again. I would caution any purchasers to make sure you order plenty. The best geese were very nice gaining a pound a week for 16-20 straight weeks. However, the worst geese only weighed 7 pounds or so at that age. To be expected though. Overall these are great geese and a great bargain. Thanks Cackle! (Posted on 12/15/2015)
Thanks! Review by Joe North Carolina June 2013
Just wanted to say thank you. Y'all shipped out my order this past Monday and I was able to pick the chicks, poults and goslings up at the post office Tuesday before noon- a full day earlier than expected! Everyone was happy and healthy and all have been thriving this week. I've always bought chickens locally and was skeptical going about ordering poultry through the mail, but it seemed that was the only way to go given that's wanted some goslings and poults and it was late in the year, Well, I am very happy to say that all of my concerns were for nothing. I could not be more pleased with your customer service department, the health of our new flock and the entire Cackle "family" that play a part. I'll definitely be a repeat customer. Thank again for everything from a grateful dad and an exceptionally excited 6 year old daughter. All the best (Posted on 11/27/2015)
Update on chicken delivery Review by Sally Michigan May 2015
They arrived on Friday, as you said they would! (Regardless of what the USPS reported)! All 13 Buckeye chicks, as well as 2 embden goslings are doing incredibly great! I look forward to integrating them with the rest of my "birds"! (Posted on 11/9/2015)
