Sebastopol Geese 

Adding glamour to your world 

A little Bit of Different


A Gorgeous addition of white fluffy clouds. Sebastopol were named after a Russian City. They were eventually exported to the U.S. and now very popular in Canada. The breed was developed from the wild Graylag goose which is native to Europe, and was recognized by The American Poultry Association in 1938.The Sebastopol is readily identified by its feathers. Long, soft-quilled, curling feathers drape elegantly from its wings, body and tail. This modification in plumage is an example of breeding for a specific trait. The white variety of the Sebastopol is best known. Both males and females have pure white feathers that contrast with their bright blue eyes and orange bills and feet. Juveniles often have traces of gray.  
Sebastopols are medium-sized geese, weighing 12 - 14 pounds when mature. They have large, rounded heads, prominent eyes, slightly arched necks, and keelless breasts. The plumage of the head and upper two-thirds of the neck is normal, while that of the breast and underbody is elongated and well-curled. Feathers may be curly (frizzle) or smooth on the breast. soft, fluffy feathers of the back, wings and tail have flexible shafts, are attractively spiraled, and in good specimens are so long that they nearly touch the ground. The curled feathers prevent flight making them easier to confine. Sebastopols produce 25-35 eggs annually. They have a quiet and pleasant disposition.
