    I am new to Goose raising, but at an auction over the weekend i won my bid on what was described as Embden goslings. On reading about them etc, i found that Embden have blue eye's. My 4 week old goslings don't have blue eye's, could they be another breed or do they change color as they mature?

    "Blue" eyes in geese aren't blue like a Siamese cat. They are grayish.
