    Ok so I got two Africans at my local Bomgaars and I had two other Africans (About 2yrs. old ) that I got from Murray McMurray hatchery. So the ones I got from bomgaars look smaller from my other geese when they where that age. I'm also having troubles telling if they are males or females. So if anyone can help me I would be vary grateful.

    I can't really tell if they are male or female, but they are very beautiful birds! Usually the ones that start getting aggressive and protective turn out to be males. My male goose is also dry vocal and makes hissing sounds at me and our dogs, while the female doesn't.

    Well after some serious searching and reconsidering I know I have 3 ganders for sure Heidi, Gus and Storm I also know I have one goose as she has layed eggs. but Buddy and Juniper are really confusing me buddy doesn't act like a gander but he?she doesn't act like a goose either. Then Juniper's neck is thicker than storms.
