This dual-purpose breed originated in Southeastern Europe and was named after Sebastopol, a Russian city from which they were imported to the USA. Sebastopol's are descendants of the European Greylag Goose. Their wings, bodies, and tails are draped with elegant, soft quilled, curling feathers. Their intriguing feathers are certainly aesthetically pleasing to the eye but aren’t capable of insulating the goose as normal feathers would. Thus, nice draft-free quarters in cold weather would suit this breed well. Male and female Sebastopols have pure white feathers, orange bills, and feet, as well as blue eyes.
Juveniles of this breed may have black or gray. By 21 weeks of age, they should be fully feathered with white feathers.
