One of the oldest breeds of geese, the Tufted Roman Goose has much to offer, by way of its docile character and compact but meaty body.

Legend has it that geese played a role in ancient Roman history, by honking and making noise when intruders attempted to take over the Roman capital in 365 BC, making it one of the oldest domesticated breeds.

Interestingly, in Europe, there are non-tufted Roman Geese, but they are exceedingly rare in North America. Some people believe they are two separate breeds. In Europe Tufted Roman Geese are utility birds, but in the US, they are far more often raised as ornamental fowl.

The American Association of Poultry recognizes Tufted Roman Geese, and the guidelines outlined in the Standard of Perfection require a tuft. In many tufted ducks, the tuft is there as a result of the shape of the bird’s skull or an extra mound of skin. In the case of the Tufted Roman Goose, though, feathers form the tuft, by growing longer in that spot.
