Brunnian Gardener's Goose

When walking through the farmlands in Wolfsbrunn you may hear the rather sweet honking of the Brunnian Gardener's Goose. This white and brown goose is native to the lands of Wolfsbrunn where it is thought that this type of goose has originally been domesticated by gnomish farmers. These geese have a natural taste for weeds and bugs, making them a great animal to have around the farm or pet to keep in your vegetable garden.   Farmer's Friend. The gardener's goose is a common animal in Wolfsbrunn and they roam quite freely in the farmlands, only coming home to their coop before sunset to roost. They are very docile creatures and do not possess the territorial agression that might be observed in other species of goose. They have a beautiful soft brown color on their heads and on the tips of their wings with a soft speckling of brown fading into the white of the rest of the plumage. It's not abnormal to see pet geese in gardens wearing simple colored handkerchief scarves to denote who has ownership of the goose. Their diet consists of insects and a selection of common weeds which they pick skillfully from between the crops, cobblestones and dirt. These geese also go absolutely wild for strawberries, which is why strawberry plants are protected from the geese on farmsteads with a medium high fence and netting. Farmers and gardeners often use (dried) strawberries as a tasty reward for a weeding job well done by the goose.   Next to being kept as a working animal, these geese are also bred and kept for their eggs, feathers and meat. The Brunnian Gardener's Goose does not lay eggs often, making the eggs quite a rare ingredient. There are several dishes that require such an egg but they are for the most part used in dishes as an opulent substitute for chicken's eggs. The down of the goose is used in pillows and duvets while the feathers of the wing are used for quills as well as decoration on clothing and hats worn by farmers and gardeners for special occassions.  
Honk!
