Got an old stack of Growing Today and LSB discard mags from the library the other day, and reading through one from 1997 about ducks and geese, I found they said we have Toulouse and Embden geese in NZ. Does anyone know if we still have these? :confused: I haven't previously come across mention of these anywhere, nor can I find any more recent mentions (even on the rare breeds site - I fear they may be an extinct breed here:().

I'd like to get geese in a few months and Embden particularly, sounds great, all the more so if I'm helping preserve a very very rare breed.

5 acres, southdownXromneys (3 ewes, a wether & a ewe lamb, 1 hogget for xmas dinner), boerXkikos (2 does and their wether and doe kids), silkies (black pullet, gold hen, white roo), light sussex (hen, pullet, cockerel), muscovies (2 blue/gray hens, a black and white drake, a couple of ducklings with hopefully more on the way soon) and pekin ducks (3 hens, 1 drake, and 5 ducklings under the sussex hen), 60-odd new fruit/nut trees and a few very small fodder trees coming along slowly, 1 little boy, 1 husband, and 3 moggy cats. [:D]
