Hi All, I have a pair of geese, Tuffy and Lucy. Both were ordered as american buffs, but they aren't quite. Tuffy is an TUFTED american buff. Lucy is a brecon buff. A conversation with some of my friends about the fatal gene in crested ducks got me to thinking. I really want a bunch of little goslings running around. Does the fact that Tuffy is a tufted increase the chance of early egg death due to the tufted gene in one parent? As you can probably tell my knowledge of genetics is next to none. I just want happy, healthy geese; purebred or not means nothing to me.
