A small migratory bird. It has a very long neck and can be found in lakes and other bodies of water.

Geese are domestic waterfowl that can also be found in wild populations. A male goose is called a gander, and young geese are called goslings. Of the common domestic egg-laying animals, the goose is the second largest; only the turkey is larger. Because of their good size, the fact they reach adulthood and full size in only one year, and low embark cost, geese are useful for both egg production and the meat industry.

Note that geese can fly, even while assigned to pastures. If they get up on a roof you will experience a large amount of spam as Dwarves attempt to return them to their pasture. This can be avoided by keeping them away from elevated surfaces that your dwarves cannot access. Alternatively, simply remove them from the pasture to prevent further repasturing jobs.

Admired for their formation flying.
