Brecon Buff Goose
Breed Club Secretary
Ducks come under the brief of:
· The Domestic Waterfowl Club of Great Britain
· The British Waterfowl Association
A recently developed Welsh Breed that was officially recognized as an individual true breed in 1934 based upon stock used by Brecon farmers (at last a breed used to rain and mud!). They are hardy breed well and respond to being allowed to forage rather than be kept in a yard.
Check if buying this breed that the stock has bright almost ‘Schapparelli’ pink legs and beak . . . the beak colour gradually becomes pinker in the gosling and can often be born with a mucky pinkish orange bill which changes as they fledge. Many of the buff coloured goslings and geese sold are Not Brecon Buff Geese . . . if in doubt ask to see the parent stock. They do not have a keel.
