Sebastopol geese are elegant quiet geese with friendly dispositions. They do not have good fertility somewhat because of the multitudes of feathers which may impede mating and also because of inbreeding. They are remarkable to view, wafting gracefully along as though wearing ruffled white gowns. They love to swim just as any other geese do and require water to keep their feathers oiled and their nostrils and eyes clean. The survival rate of the young goslings is also compromised, again due to inbreeding. For that reason, Sebastopol geese are sometimes mated with other breeds and produce coloured frizzle feathered geese or white with hybrid vigour. I am thrilled to finally have these magnificent birds as part of the farm. Simply stunning!
