I've had my Chinese geese for the last couple years and I have to be honest and say that geese are not for everyone. I love mine, but they certainly try my patience at times. They tend to follow me around when I go outside, seeing if they can't wheedle some extra food out of me. They can actually be quite affectionate, letting me pet them sometimes, but only on a full stomach. I've been bitten more than once figuring that out.
My geese tend to be pretty loud, especially around mealtime, but sometimes in the middle of the night as well. I've gotten used to it, but it was a bit difficult at first. Goose eggs are delicious, but enormous. Probably not the most practical for everyday use.
