Ah, what a glorious sight! These look to be White Embden geese. I never had more than 200 Peking or Khaki Campbells at a time, but that was enough for my small place [40 acres, they were free ranging, shut up in their duck house at night]. My last geese were White Egyptian, about 12 to 15, very svelte, agile critters!
HOW I love this!!! First off, I love geese! Thanks, it makes me smile!!!!!
OOPS !!!!! OH CRAP THESE ARE DUCKS!!!! ROFL MY BAD THAT’S OK, I LOVE DUCKS TOO. MY APOLOGIES TO ANY BIRDS I MIGHT HAVE INSULTED.
No, Linda, you were correct, these are geese. I recognised them immediately, as I’ve raised them, usually 12-20 at a time. Their long necks, distinctive head profile, and deep keels are typical for the breed [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embden_goose]. For me, geese are amazing in the ways they live together, with profound communal defense and care. We’d do well to learn from them!
LOL – If I were seeing this live and in person with a shotgun…
Duck is really tasty if grilled properly. 😀
What the flock is this; the real duck dynasty?
