The Emden goose breed is one of the most prolific breeders. Not only that, they are also the most suitable for crossing, which is a great feature whether you’re looking to profit from breeding goose or not. Feathers of Emden geese are also highly in demand because of their white color and silky feel. The Chinese breed, however, is better at laying eggs. Members of this breed are also considered better sitters and foragers, and they weigh more and mature earlier. This makes this particular goose breeding ideal for profit-making purposes.
The African breed is unique-looking, owing to its tall stature, dark beak, brown plumage, and that unmistakable knob on its head. Members of this goose breeding are good layers, although their average weight is smaller than those of the Chinese and Emden breeds.
