Early birds often appeared with grey markings on their backs and a few will throw this defect today. They are very small compact chubby little birds with no keel. In America this breed is often found with a small feather crest and many have crests.

They have become more poular in the USA / Europe as the basis for a small chubby eating goose having a good meat / bone ratio and being prolific breeders. They produce a carcase more suitable to smaller families and a suitable maet for Kosher and other specialist diets."; $characteristics = "Their distinctive feature is their short neck and shorter back / body line."; $breed_tips = ""; $purpose = ""; $classification = ""; $origin = ""; $egg_color = ""; $egg_numbers = ""; include "template_goose_breeds.php"; ?>
