Yeah, we had the Aldi goose one Christmas, together with a turkey, the goose had so little meat on it, was were all amazed.
i don't know if this is geese in general, or just the Aldi one we had.

not at Middleton store

Goose, duck quail, pigeon, pheasant, partridge have much less lean meat per £ or kg when compared with chicken and turkey. For a 5kg bird, the weight is distributed very approximately :-
1 kg of fat to cut off prior to roasting (mainly from the abdominal area and the upper breast to the neck , then during roasting another 1kg of fat comes out from the thick oily skin. About 1.5kg is the carcass + neck + bum + offal leaving you with about 1- 1.5kg of lean meat , from the breast and legs. This is typical and not exclusive to Aldi though geese reared in hotter climate may have less fat but is still more fatty than duck. Geese are long range flyers so build up lots of fat for flying and to keep warm in flight.

Don't forget that the fat can be as valuable as the meat. I strain it whilst warm through a sieve into glass jars, allow to cool and then freeze. I then use for roast potatoes etc. (Check the price for goose fat in supermarket)
I was given a wild Canadian goose (killed in a cull) and it had much more meat and very little fat on it, the meat was the tastiest I have had. They are protected so you can't normally get them though.

Don't let celebrity chef fool you to use trendy goose fat by buying jars at high prices. Potatoes taste good when roasted in any animal fat (blocks of lard and suet are far cheaper though may not be agreable for some religion and cultural habits) but chicken and duck fat are much more readily available. I wouldn't pay for goose fat as each time you have chicken/duck just cut and save the fat/skin in the freezer.
