Use of Chinese Geese: Chinese are the layers of the goose world. They are very prolific, laying from 40 to 100 eggs with proper management. They are in the Light class so are not particularly useful as a market fowl, but will dress nicely with less grease than other breeds. Very ornamental and noisy, they have been used as guardians. They are also active foragers and have been used as weeder geese in strawberry, tobacco and other crops.
