Sebastopol Geese

An easy bird to keep on hand

Sebastopols are medium-sized white geese which are known for their long curling feathers. These should be curly all over the bird's body. The goose pictured directly below has stiff flight feathers, which are a defect in the breed standard, while the gander's feathering is correct. The gander weighs 12 to 14 pounds, and the goose 10 to 12. The beak and legs are orange and the eyes are bright blue. They originated in Europe along the Danube River and around the Black Sea.
