The domesticated Embden goose is thought to have originated from Holland and/or Germany. The Embden plumage is pure white, however the bill, feet and shanks are orange. They have blue eyes, short legs, a long swan-like neck and a broad, well-rounded body. They are large (14 kg for the male, 9 kg for the female), fast growing birds.

The Embden is a very hardy breed and are known to be good foragers and are generally good layers (approximately 40 eggs laid during the breeding season).
