The Chinese goose is the “ancestor” of a wild goose bug, domesticated many centuries ago in Manchuria, China, and on the territory of our country, Siberia. Currently, this breed has become widespread in the Russian Federation. They are breeding not only households, but also Russian scientists, using as a gene pool

In addition, Chinese geese are the leaders in laying eggs among the other gander species. Often hatching eggs in goose begins at the end of autumn and early winter (November-December) when they reach 9 months of age, and hatchability is approximately 70%

Chinese goose is akin to cuckoos – they do not want to breed their goslings, but when this breed crosses with others, a new species appears, with greater endurance and egg-laying in the young

This breed of geese is valued for its unusual appearance, great liveliness and “energy.” For one year the goose lays up to 70 eggs, in the “champions” this number reaches a hundred. The color of the shell is “white cream”, the weight reaches 120 grams. Begin to incubate eggs at the age of 270 days, in the incubator, the percentage of live goslings is 80%

The Chinese gray goose is very slender, with a direct setting of the head, the presence of a knob on the forehead and a “swan” neck. Little feathers, but they fit tightly to the body, a loud trumpet voice

The weight of young animals already reaches three to 3.5 kilograms already in two or two and a half months, the average weight of a goose is 4 kilograms, the average weight of a gander is 5 kilograms. The goose is weaker and has a characteristic lump above the beak that is noticeably smaller than that of the male

Feathering gray, gray-brown color on the shoulders, on the wings and legs, is a milky white color, a brisket of a white-brown hue. A thin “thong” of dark brown color runs from the head to the shoulders, and a strip of white separates the black cones and the bird’s beak. White belly and lower part, white-gray – feathers on the tail

The exterior view is very similar to the Chinese gray geese. They have a good fecundity of offspring and adapt easily to different conditions of maintenance and feeding

Chinese white geese are valued for their “harmony”: the goslings weigh about 3 kg after 2.5 months, adult geese reach 5.5 kg, geese – 4 kg

Average egg production reaches 70 eggs, fertility – up to 80%, goslings – up to 70%, the safety of the “young generation” in the first months is almost 100%.
