West of England geese are a breed of autosexing domestic goose.

Description

West of England geese are a rare or heritage breed of medium-sized geese. They were originally found across the south of England in particular in Devon and Cornwall. They are auto-sexing meaning that one can identify females by their grey markings on head and back immediately after hatching.

West of England geese have blue eyes, an orange bill, a dual-lobed paunch and a calm temperament. They weigh between 6 and 9 kg. The gander is white and sometimes shows some traces of grey. The female goose has clear grey markings on head, neck, back and the thigh coverts.
