The Grigia Padovana goose (or Grigia di Padova) is an ancient well-built breed coming from Veneto (particularly the province of Padua). Today these animals are lighter, but in the past they reached 10 kg.
- Male: 7-8 kg
- Female: 6-7 kg
The coat is similar to the wild goose’s, it looks like the French breed Toulouse, a rural type.
