Goose is still seen as largely a seasonal bird. It has become popular once more
for festive family meals as it is larger than most turkeys (they do however have
more bone structure).
Geese vary tremendously in size from 10 - 13 kg for the heavy types such as the
Embden and Toulouse, to 5 - 6 kg for the Chinese or Roman goose. The males are
at the top end of the weight range, the females smaller.
