These are a commercial meat strain of Embden gosling, that are used for Christmas.

The Embden is a very old breed of goose. Some poultry historians believe it was developed in Germany, around the Ems River, though others believe it was developed further north in Denmark. Embden are the tallest geese, and thanks to their heavy weight and all-white plumage, they have always been a popular market fowl for meat production. Goslings can be sexed (distinguished by gender) at about 1-3 weeks of age based on the colour of their downy feathers. Embden Geese are the ideal meaty strain that is traditionally used for Christmas,
