The females lay around 40 eggs per year and do get broody. African geese are a long living breed that is docile and sociable in temperament, although the males can sometimes be aggressive in the breeding season. They are easy to look after and enjoy grazing on grass. They also make good guards, and are noisy when surprised. Mature males weigh around 12.7 kg and the females 10.9 kg.
