Can anyone identify my gosling??
Hi, well it could be a female Pilgrim or similar, or a normal toulouse, (also called production toulouse) or any of that type of grey goose. Is this the lone baby?

Here´s a pic of some toulouse goslings in France that I found on the net.... see what you think....

What colour was the one that you lost? One thing that looks more like female Pilgrim is that she has dark feet. I imagine she´s stood quite tall because of being alone?

Thank you! Very helpful and yes this is the lone baby. I can tell she misses the other one but she has been running around with all the other ducks today as normal. I really hope she is okay. The other gosling was identical to the one above. The gosling I have seems to be the same as the ones in the pic but as you say - with darker feet.

Generally, the goslings that come from the european geese (greylag) all look very similar, other than in colour. So it can be difficult to give a very accurate guess. It´s a bit easier once they become adult.
Did you buy it in a feedstore? A breeder? What did you expect it to be? Just trying to narrow it down a bit....
