Geese

Hi,

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? 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.

Thanks

Re: Geese

TandS, there is a water fowl breeder in Blenheim who may have what you're looking for, or know of some breeders. Email me for the contact details. I can't post them on an open forum.
