The most graceful of domestic geese, this breed has been given the name "Swan Goose". Both White and Brown varieties have a very light build with an upright posture. A distinctive feature on this bird and more so on the gander, is the conspicuous knob on top of the base of their bills. These noisy geese make great "watchdogs" by their high spirited honking, and are the best goose for weeding out your garden. Their laying ability far exceeds other breeds of domestic geese, although they are not the best setters.

Our strain of China Geese are gentle and tame. They are most content to stand close to their keeper and enjoy being pet or handled.

The Asian wild Swan Goose, (Anser cygnoides) which is the origin of the domestic Chinese Goose lacks the large knob at the bill and is capable of sustained flight. The Brown Chinese retains the same color as its wild ancestor.

The difference between mature male and female Chinese Geese You can tell mostly by the sound of their honk. The gander (male) has a high shrill (long double syllable) honk, resembling "steee-ill". The goose (female) has a deeper (short single or double syllable) honk; sounding like "hoink". With Chinese Geese, the gander is taller and has a large round knob above his bill, while his mate's should be less than half the size.

CornerStone Farm is not a commercial poultry hatchery. We hatch quality over quantity. This practice offers sales of select young and mature fowl. We do not ship day old birds.
