Red Breasted Geese
Red Breasted Geese are one of the smallest and most beautiful geese and can be found in Russia. They can be one of the hardest breeds to raise in captivity we have found they do much better in a small flock then if they were in single pairs. We raise them in an aviary that we put pans of water out for them through out the aviary so each pair can pick a nest site and a pan of water. They normally lay 5-7 eggs that will incubate for about 23 days before hatching.
