Pilgrim Geese

The breed is auto-sexing with distinct color differences between males (ganders) and females (geese) at hatching.  Newly hatched ganders are light yellow and geese are grey.  Adult Ganders are mostly white with some grey on the rump and occasionally with traces of grey on other parts of their bodies.  Adult Geese are mostly grey and occasionally have traces of grey in their faces. Both Ganders and geese have a knobless orange bill, and orange feet and shanks. Weight of the mature bird is about 13-14 pounds. The bird is an excellent table bird.

This breed of goose is listed as critical by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.[1]
