American Buff geese are larger than the Sebastopols, and have brown feathers, hazel eyes and orange feet and beaks. They originated in the USA, mainly from German strains. Buffs are a docile, calm breed, and make very good parents.
Guinea hens They control deer ticks, wood ticks, grasshoppers, box elder bugs, flies crickets, and all other insects. Their call will discourage rodents and will kill and eat mice and small rats.
