Roman Tufteds are a friendly, small breed of goose - in fact, they are the smallest breed derived from the Grey Lag. They have beautiful snow white feathers and striking blue eyes. And of course as their name implies they have a tuft of feathers atop their heads. They are currently critically endangered and very much in need of people willing to work with and keep them. These geese are exceedingly well tempered and are the friendliest poultry that I own. They are excellent watch dogs, alerting to any danger. In fact, this is the breed that saved Rome from the Gallic hordes. Though the dogs slept that night, the geese did not, and they sounded the alarm, saving the city. Roman Tufted geese are also considered sacred to Juno. They are good mothers and will lay a clutch each year and will hatch and raise goslings if allowed. Eggs available during the breeding season.
