The Pezzata Veneta (or Oca Padana) has been selected in Veneto. It is reared inVeneto and Lombardia today. It lays 100 eggs a year weighing 120 g on average. Scarsely apt to brooding, its tasty meat is suitable to be worked as salami or seasoned meat, as well as fresh roast meat. Although it looks solemn, when walking it has an awkward slow gait.
