MANED GEESE

Maned Geese were the first wildfowl that we ever got and we have never looked back since. They are extremely friendly and tend to spend more time on land grazing than they do in the water. They can fly extremely well so its best to keep their wings clipped at all times.

Size

Typical Adult is 45-51cm (18-20in).


Food

Mainly grazes on grasses, clover, and crops. Also dabbles in shallow water for aquatic plants, and occasionally insects.


Habitat/Range

Wetlands, lakes, rivers, lightly wooded swamps, marshes, open woodland, farmland and grasslands throughout much of Australia, and Tasmania.

Usually September to November.


Eggs

9 to 11 (pale creamy-white colour).
