Which breed(s) would make the best pet(s)for me?
First look at the colors and descriptions. Which appeal to you? Look at our Duck Breed Comparisons to compare temperament, size, and other breed characteristics.
For ducks, the larger breeds (Pekin, Rouen, Blue Swedish, Buff, Cayuga) are normally the calmest. Remember that the Mallard and Muscovy can fly.
We suggest you get several different breeds for a variety of colors and shapes.
For geese, there are no hard rules, but the Large Dewlap Toulouse, Sebastopol, Buff, Tufted Buff, Pilgrim and Roman Tufted seem the calmest.
Chinese and African are the noisiest. For each breed of goose, we have had customers tell us that that breed of goose was the best goose pet they have ever had.
We also have a Goose Breed Comparison Chart to help you determine which
breed(s) might be right for you.
