Sex-linked animals - females are grey & white, males are white. (Actually, both genders tend to have some white or grey, regardless of the primary color.) Bills are pink/rose rather than the orange of Pilgrim Geese. Males have blue eyes. A smaller goose that retains the ability to fly (important for its role as a free-ranging weed-control animal.) Reportedly, they form bonded pairs, even in a flock, so a fairly even mix of males and females is recommended. Females lay up to three clutches of 5 to 10 eggs in the spring.
