goose or gander

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

is there any way to tell a goose from a gander? I am raising two Grey Toulouse goslings that I bought as straight run. I would just really like to know if "Champagne" and "Chablis" are boys or girls, or one of each.

I realize that, but I don't know how. I have read that inexperienced hands can hurt the goslings. I was hoping that there was another way to tell.

Sometimes as they get older they will walk and stand differently, my goose just moseys along pretty much keeping her head down . My gander on the other hand walk very erect very seldom paying attention to where he is going always has his head up. My ganders voice is much higher pitched than my gooses too.
