Öland goose

Öland geese, from the Swedish island of Öland, are lighter weight geese. The female weighs about 4-5 kilograms. The geese are gray in color with white patches.

All existing Öland geese come from a single pair that was discovered in the Swedish province of Västergötland.

Geese were kept mainly for meat but also as guard animals.

The breed today is critically endangered.

The museum’s geese get angry if people get too close to their pond.
