The American Poultry Association (APA) has three weight classifications for geese.

  • Light 2.5 – 6.4 kg
  • Medium 6.4 – 9.5 kg
  • Heavy > 10 kg

Geese are classified as a ‘waterfowl’ of the order Anseriformes, family Anatidae. This family also includes ducks and swans. They have medium to large bodies and are strong swimmers. Historically they have been an important food source, and are currently raised as poultry for both meat and eggs.
