Embden Geese are a white goose that is sometimes called the Emden (without the ‘b’) or the Bremen (usually in America). Embdens have an orange bill and legs and have blue eyes. Embdens are quite tall compared to other geese, although the Embdens in the UK tend to be a little shorter and stockier than those found in Europe and heavier than those found in North America.The Embden is thought to originate from the North part of Germany. The town of Emden used to be spelt with a ‘b’ and the goose has retained this in its name in the UK. Some early publications suggest it might have some of its origins in Holland but some of the more respected Authors of the day, such as Lewis Right believed the breed to have been created in Emden, North Germany.Embden geese do not lay very many eggs in a season, typically only 20 eggs. They will often go broody and are good sitters. Ganders can be aggressive whilst protecting the sitting goose or young goslings. Some grey feathers can be found in young first year females, typically on their back or rump but eventually, they should end up as pure white
