The African goose originated from the wild Asian Swan Goose of China. It was introduced into Europe in the late 1700s and into the USA in the mid 1800s. The original Lion Head breed of goose in China is the same shape and coloration as our African geese. How these geese from China got the name African has always been puzzling. Apparently, it was usual to apply the term "Guinea" to anything foreign and of uncertain origin. As Guinea is off the coast of Africa, it appears the African goose got its name in a similar way.

In northern climates, it is recommended the African geese be provided shelter as their knobs have a tendency to become frostbitten if not given sufficient protection from the cold. If the knob is frostbit, spots may turn orange but then the knob returns to black once the tissue is completely healed the following year. African geese are similar to Chinese geese in that they are a bit noisier than other breeds. They are a beautiful goose and are very active foragers. They are good egg producers with above average fertility. There are two recognized breeds of colored geese from China, the African and Brown Chinese Geese. Our African are midsized between these two and are a very common goose. If you want the larger, show-type African goose with a pronounced dewlap, you want our Super African Geese.

This was my wife and I first year of raising geese and we like them more than our chickens. We purchased afew for guard geese and they have impresses me. We had an owl steak out our chicken flock till the geese sounded the alarm and rounded the chickens up into their house and stood guard at the door way till we shut them up for the night. They act just like dogs, they'll greet you and have different personalities. Highly recommend but they are very talkative, but that's what we was looking for in a guard animal.

March 22, 2023 | So happy

I just received my shipment of babies this morning and all I can say is I'm extremely happy with it. My baby gosling is beautiful, she is alive and chirping. She is doing amazing. Thank you so much and I will definitely be ordering again.

They are so cute, arrived alert and seemed to be doing well, getting settled in to there new home, already love them

May 16, 2023 | Very sweet, loving, fantastic guardians for your flocks

I absolutely adore them, and would recommend African geese to anyone who wants a gentle guardian for their flocks. They definitely have a loud honk, my gander does not have a mute button and that's why we got them. My neighbors can hear my geese 1/2 a mile away if they're getting food or water changes. These geese are loyal to the bone. In our instance we were able to raise them in a brooder inside our home so they think we are part of their flock.
