Sknegs – also known as Scania Geese or South Sweden Geese

The Skånegås – also known as Scania Geese or South Sweden Geese – originate from Sweden, specifically from the towns of Vomb and Hunneberga around the end of the 19th century.

This goose looks similar to the Pomeranian Goose and the Danish Goose, and it is believed that it is a descendent from the Pomeranian.


This is a large goose with males weighing between 24 to 38 lbs and hens between 15 to 20 lbs. The plumage is mainly gray and white. They have blue-grey eyes and yellowish-orange bills.


They tend to be calm, but can be aggressive at times. They make excellent parents.
