The White Chinese goose is one of the smallest domesticated geese breeds, and it is also a prolific egg-layer. An excellent forager, this goose is an independent and self-sufficient breed. It is also protective of its nest and will honk loudly if it is confronted. Outwardly, it is among the most elegant breeds, as its long neck and snow-white feathers closely resemble a swan. White Chinese geese are great for orchards, gardens and pastures, but are not recommended as pets.
