This breed of goose was developed in Haute Garonne, France, where the city of Toulouse is the region's center. They were first exported to England in the 1840s and America in the early 1850s. Though they fatten up well if you want a good roasted goose, their darker pin feathers do not produce as attractive a carcass as a white goose.

But the advantage of the darker feathers is the adult birds appear neater and cleaner than a white goose if it is muddy or late in the season. Specially-bred strains of Toulouse are still used in France for the production of goose foie gras, the force-fed liver that is revered by chefs world-wide for its smooth texture and taste.

Many people first think of Toulouse when geese are mentioned. They are fairly common, lay a good number of fertile eggs and are a sturdy, durable breed. They are one of the best breeds at hatching and raising their own young.


Customer Reviews of Toulouse Geese

February 6, 2021 | Great Guards and Layers

We got 2 female geese as guards after we lost a bunch of chickens and all previous ducks to hawk attacks. Tried the fishing line strung around their fence, but not convenient because of weekly moves, and the hawks figured it out. Since we got them, we only lost one chicken. Seen plenty of red tails flying over them, but they always stay well clear of the birds now, and the geese immediately alert. Eggs laying period is fairly short, but prolific during that time, and easy to sell individually.

July 25, 2022 | Amazing Toulouse Geese

Received 3 female geese the end of May. They arrived in perfect condition.. great shipping job by all. They have grown very fast and they are almost 8 weeks old. The are so sweet, funny, very silly, and very affectionate. I spent the time to have them bond with me, which is the key to raising them as pets. They follow me anywhere and they are not that messy. They love their kiddie pool time.. I have 2 small kiddie pools for them. When it gets too crowded they can move to the 2nd one. They just love to be around people. They are not aggressive to people but they do chase off the dog or cat if they get too close. If you can spend the time with them they are amazing pets. They are just beautiful.

June 15, 2023 | Arrived wonderfully!

This is our second order of goslings from Metzer and again they arrived super healthy and vigorous. We will definitely go to Metzer for all our water foul needs in the future. Super satisfied!

April 17, 2024 | Just call me Mother Goose

I am so thrilled with the Toulouse Goose I received, last week. She i is an absolute joy... She has definitely imprinted on me, and whenever out of the brooder, she is following me everywhere, and chirps her poor little heart out if she can't see me.. I also received three ducklings the same day, and she is great and allowing them to huddle around her. My first try with geese, and I couldn't be happier. I am so happy I found Metzer Farms. The staff is wonderful at answering questions, and just as good when a rare problem occurs. I will certainly be returning, when the need arises.
