This small, chubby goose was probably developed in the Danube River Valley. It is not known in the area of Rome before 600 BC.

The Roman is a white goose with blue eyes, reddish-orange feet, and pinkish beak with a white bean.

Tufts or crests appear fairly often in Roman Geese. In the APA Standard the tuft is required, although nontufted birds are common in the UK.
