African Geese originated from the wild swan goose of China. They are a noisier breed of geese than others and can be used as “watch dogs”. African geese are active foragers with good mothering instincts. They weigh between 12-16 lbs and lay around 35-45 eggs a year. They have a large knob on its forehead, and should be provided shelter so that it doesn’t become frostbitten.
