About this title


There are many reasons for keeping geese—for eggs, meat, exhibition, as rare breeds, or just pets. Whatever your reason for choosing these fascinating birds, Chris Ashton explains how to look after them, from setting up with the first birds to breeding, rearing, and showing. Topics covered include breeds, their origin, and characteristics; an overview of different enterprises; management of adult stock; the breeding season; rearing the goslings; and ailments and diseases.

About the Author:

Dr. Chris Ashton is a teacher by profession and a waterfowl breeder by choice.  She and her husband live on a smallholding in Wales where they specialize in pure breeds of ducks and geese. They have developed their stock to be amongst the top waterfowl breeders in the UK over the last 25 years. Chris, together with Mike Ashton, has also written The Domestic Duck, Colour Breeding in Domestic Ducks, and The Indian Runner Duck.  They both contribute regularly to Fancy Fowl and Smallholder magazines.
