    URGENT!!! What are some characteristics that can differentiate a male and female White Chinese goose?

    My White Chinese geese are 9 1/2 weeks old. I really hope at least one is female. I notice that one of them stands tall, has a higher pitched voice, has a smaller vent, tends to be noisy and has a larger developed knob (the one eating grass in the picture). While the other likes to stand more...

    Goose bill injured; no vet available for 2 weeks

    Hello, My sweet goose got into a scuffle with a dog & fortunately came out relatively unscathed. The only issue is the lower part of her bill has a protrusion that was not visible before. There was never any blood coming from it and she seems to be eating and drinking completely normally, but...

    How to sex Emden Geese

    I have six Emden geese that are getting a bit too loud and I need to cut the flock to 3 or 4 but I don't know how to properly sex them. I tried listening to their honks to try and sex them that way but I can barely tell. Are there any other ways to sex them without messing with their cloacas...

I'd like brown Chinese geese for laying (because I like their unique head knob), but are they a good laying breed? Also how much should I expect to pay for something like 10 brown...

    Tip for overheating birds

    I just learned this today going off of a hunch and I wanted to share this for the chance that it could help someone else. If your goose or duck is overheating get their webs wet. Definitly move them to shade or a cooler location and get them some water to drink, preferably with a tub of water...

    REPOST: Please help - Goose egg hatching

    I'm currently on day 29 of incubating Emden x Toulouse eggs and I had 3/4 with movement on day 26-27 but after raising the humidity it went to 83% for 24 hours (my target was 70%). Now I don't see any movement. They should be hatching by now right? Did I drown them?

I was in the process of cutting up plums and I put the plum pits in a pile on the table. One of my geese hopped up on the chair and ate a plum pit off the table before I could even...
