    I think they are, but I am not a goose expert when it comes to conformation.

    I prefer white "15 years raising whites and only whites lol" Sebastopols. But yes they are quite good quality. Good curls, shape, stance. The saddleback has better curls than the gray but they are likely coming out of molt this time of year. No angel wings either. All in all they are breeder-show quality.

    Glad to help, any other questions let me know. If I can't answer them I've two other friends in my area hear than are very experienced in Sebastopols.

    One more thing If you don't mind. I know vent sexing for sure but I am not good at that. Can you tell male/female from size? The grey is bigger and the saddleback sounds like a peacock. Thank you far any help. Geese are not as easy as ducks to tell apart.

    The grey is also a few weeks younger. They are about seven months old.

    They are a little young to sex by size yet "couple more months". But when they are mature its obvious, the males a noticeably larger than females. A trained ear can sex them by sound, females are higher pitched and generally make more noise.
