SEBASTAPOL GOOSE  Anser anser  ©AllAboutPoultry    In German, they are called Lockengans or Struppgans, meaning “curl-goose” and “unkempt goose” but they are beautiful animals with fancy tutu-like feathering. Sebastopols cannot fly well due to the curliness of their feathers and have difficulty getting off the ground. They need plenty of water in order to keep themselves clean, and to clean their sinuses. They were originally bred to use their curly feathers in pillows and quilts.
