my new breeding trio of  Sebastopol  The Sebastopol is a medium-sized goose with long, white curly feathers. The feathers of the neck are smooth and sometimes greyish-brown. ] Feathers on the breast may be curly (frizzle) or smooth. The gander weighs 12-14 lbs while the goose weighs 10-12 lbs

I have both a smooth and a frizzle female, all are proven breeders, sitters, hatchers and baby raisers

    Not sure if you’ve had salmon favarales before – we raised a batch years ago – I did find them to be a very timid bird, given to hiding in odd places to avoid other chickens half their size.
    I also had Sebastopols for many years (along with Great Dewlap Toulouse and Super Africans). Very pretty bird 🙂 You have to keep a close watch on them tho – with their reverse feathering, they have zero ‘lift’ – in a predator situation our other geese can quickly get to the pond – the Sebastopols can only run. In the winter we took to putting them in the barn – as we would come home to find the odd one would have jumped into the water trough and being unable to flap back out, would freeze to the trough. 🙂
