- Review Good to go! Promoted to GA. Meets core policies and guidelines, and in particular: is neutral; cites sources with inline citations; is free of close paraphrasing issues, copyright violations and plagiarism. Earwig's copy violation detector: Graylag Goose report gives it a clean bill. The articles that are ranked at 60+% have an attribution to the Wikipedia article.
- Original image used in article and has permissions, and Commons license seems to be Okay. Clear at 100 pix.
- DYK nomination was timely and article is easily long enough. Every paragraph is cited. Hook reference is cited in line from a scholarly paper—Hugo, Susanne (2002). "Chapter 1: Origins and Breeds of Domestic Geese". In Buckland, Roger; Guy, Gérard (eds.). Geese: the underestimated species. FAO Agriculture Department. ISSN 0254-6019.—and verified. Hook is hooky enough, I think, and relates directly to the essence of the article. It is interesting, decently neutral, and appropriately cited. QPQ done, although article is not yet promoted. Cheers on a job well done! 7&6=thirteen (☎) 21:47, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
