The Embden is a breed of Domestic Goose thought to have originated in Holland or Germany, though other theories abound that it is in fact the product of English and German White Goose interbreeding. dating back to the 13th century.
They're nice, sturdy-looking geese with pure white feathers, light orange beaks, and blue eyes that resemble those of a human. They have a curious glide through the water in that they let their legs drag idly behind them when they can. I don't know if other geese indulge in such laziness, but it does add to the overall calmer demeanor of these pretty birds.
