Here are some of my Toulouse Geese (production variety). I currently have a flock of 6. Although I have a livestock pond, my Geese do not use it. I have two kiddie swimming pools for them. It is probably a good thing they do not use the pond because there are some large snapping turtles inhabiting it (and known to take feet off geese or kill ducks). They also will incubate their own eggs and when hatched, the gander and the rest of the flock protect the babies as a group.
