PURE SEBASTOPOL GEESE:
Sebastopol Geese are best known for their long curling, draped feathers. They are a medium sized goose with males and females weighing between 12-14 lbs. Thought to originate from an area around
the Black Sea, they are named for the city of Sebastopol in Russia.
Seebies are a docile and relatively calm goose that are attentive and, if handled correctly, not aggressive. They are flightless so extra protection from predators is a must, especially when the
goose is sitting a nest. A goose will lay approximately 25-35 eggs a year, or more, if they are collected and incubated. Their breeding season in our mid-atlantic area is from February
until mid-June though in a mild summer they may also lay a late summer/early fall brood. During breeding season the ganders will compete by wrestling each other in what looks like a Greco-Roman Knot
with 2 or 3 ganders each grabbing another's wing where is connects to the body and tussling in a circle for a few minutes. This is ONE way to identify males in the flock!
Sebastopols come in the standard, pure white, as well blue, gray, and buff colors in Solid, Splash, and Saddleback patterns. Our Pure Sebastopols are white, gray splash, and blue splash, and may
carry for saddleback as well.
