Sexing Embden Gosling?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a day old embden gosling and I don't know if it's a boy or girl. I hear that you can tell by the gray on their back. Can anybody tell me what I've got? Or are there any other methods?

It looks like a cross breed and is male

A cross breed? That's odd. My neighbor gave me the egg an she only has white embdens... How can you tell if it's a male just by looking at it? That's pretty cool.

It's a crossbreed. Is it possible that Canada geese visited your neighbors property? The shape of the goslings head & bill reminds me of a Canada gosling's.

I suppose it is possible... The embdens are giant I can't imagine that a tiny Canadian could mate with a giant embden, but you never know. That would look really cool though! I guess we'll have to wait and see, but looks like a male?

Now that I look at the two goslings, it's not as yellow as embdens, but not as dark as the Canadian. I think y'all might be right. His beaks not bright pink like the embdens but not black like the Canadian. This is so wierd!
