Pied geese have been noted in history for centuries, and were commonly raised in Baltic region of Europe.

The Buff and Grey Back Goose was first standardized in the United Kingdom, in 1982.

It is normal for older Buff and Grey Backed geese will develop white around their bill. 

The Buff and Grey Backed goose can be easily confused with the Pomeranian goose, as their pied plumage is very similar. However, they can be told apart by looking at their lobes. The Pomeranian is a single lobed fowl, while the Buff and Grey Backed goose has two lobes.
