Right now we are less interested in eggs. I'm sensitive to them so I can't eat any, my husband only eats them a few times a week, so we need very few of them. Probably it will change when we will have kids though.
The big issue is meat, I'm sensitive to any kind of animal protein besides meat, no milk or eggs for me.

I have heard the same as you--that geese are very cheap to raise. It seems to me that the big cost is the startup breeding stock; once you have them, though, it's said that they breed for years.
