    Does anybody remember that old cartoon? This is our first hatch of Toulouse for this year. They are still in a maturnity pen but at the rate they are growing it won't be long before they can explore the real world!

    They do talk to each other in their own way, both the gander and the 2 gooses will almost scold them if they come to close to me when i'm in there. lol

    Quote:Not yet I haven't sexed them. They will probably spend another week or 2 in the maturnity pen to grow out some more then i'll see who is what before they go out with the rest of the gang. Our main pens aren't covered so the bigger the Hueys get the better.

    They are so cute [​IMG] I have 1 toulouse gosling, 'he' (I think) is about 6 weeks old or so. About half the size as the adult geese, and has quite a few feathers on the back and wings. Chatterbox ('his' name) is such a lover, always comes up to me to say hello when I'm out in the yard [​IMG] Their 'parents' (pair of embdens I recently bought, along with a toulouse that I suspect is a gander) have recently started taking Chatterbox and Little One (african baby, also about 6 weeks old) to the pond, it is so neat watching them in there [​IMG]
