American Buff Goose

Scientific name: Anser anser domesticus

Country / Place of origin: United States

History: The American Buff Goose was developed in the United States in the early 1900’s. Unfortunately, these breeders did not document their process very thoroughly, which has made the Buff Goose's history something of a mystery. It is believed that Pomeranian Geese are part of their ancestry.

Today, the American Buff Goose is rare, and has been given a classification of "critical" by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
