Roman Tufted

Currently Unavailable
 

The Roman Tufted is not a large goose and is actually classified as a light breed for show purposes. Most do not have a tuft or crest on their head. They are especially popular in North America. The crest is not similar to the crested ducks, the crest in geese is due to a group of feathers standing more upright, causing the appearance of a small helmet on their head. They are a smaller, plump bird with a friendly personality.
