The Cackling Goose (Branta Canadensis Minima) is widespread throughout all Europe and North America. It’s regarded as the smallest of “Dark Geese”, it is mild and peaceful and usually it lives with other Northern Geese in very big colonies. This breed prefers the ground than the sea, it makes a sound like a horn and it is in harmony with human beings. The Cackling Goose (Branta Canadensis Minima) is easy to breed because it can adapt to specialized feed and it can live in captivity very well and together with other breeds because it is a quite and sociable goose. It loves big grasslands which are full of water, areas with dense vegetation and ocean beaches. The Cackling Goose (Branta Canadensis Minima) is vegetarian and it eats grains and seed but it loves grass above all; it also loves to feed in shallow water where it captures deeply aquatic roots with its long neck. Both members of the couple prepare the nest, usually in the coastal areas of the Pacific or in western Alaska, in Californian valleys or along the Sacramento river. The nests are build on the ground, generally among the rocks or the cliffs because they are safe places from predators like wild cats, crows or seagulls. Cackling Goose (Branta Canadensis Minima) female deposes from 3 to 9 eggs which are incubated for about 24/25 days; during this period male is looking after its territory becoming very aggressive. Both mates look after their goslings, also bringing them together for many weeks. There aren’t many differences between males and females; usually, male is a little bit bigger than female and it makes a stronger and higher sound than its mate. Both members of Cackling Goose (Branta Canadensis Minima) have thin head, a rather short beak and black neck (as the head too) and it has clear spots that come together under the chin.
