Pilgrims are the only domestic goose breed in which you can distinguish males from females at any age. As goslings, the males are yellow and light gray with lighter colored bills whereas the females have a deeper gray-green down and a darker bill. Mature males are white with a touch of gray on their rump or wings and mature females are gray in color like a Toulouse but often with white on their heads.

Pilgrim geese are very calm and have a reputation for being excellent parents. The fertility of their eggs is low, however, in our experience, it averages about 60% over the complete season. Pilgrim geese weigh 13-15 lbs, and the females lay 20-25 large, white eggs per year.

Our geese will fully integrate with all the other breeds that we offer. If you want purebred geese, make sure you separate your geese by breed during the mating season. Or you can let your geese cross and see what different shapes and colors you will get with their goslings.
