    My babies have finally hatched! Please help me determine the sex of them! They all look like girls to me! Anyone think differently?

    I just vent sexed two light colored seb goslings and I have one boy and one girl for sure.....even had a friend double check for me. The color sexing is not always 100%.

    I can't help with the color sexing, I'm new at this to. They sure are cute though. I've got five of the little boogers running around right now. Three splash boys, two white females, and three more colored eggs in the bator.

    Enjoy them while they're small. They grow sooooooo fast. [​IMG]

    Are these whites? If so I would guess 2 boys and a girl[far right]

    What makes you think the 2 on the left are males? Is it the lack of the dark cap and saddleback pattern? They came from 3 different pairs of geese if that helps. I read the males are lighter and yellower and they all look really dark to me. In fact, they all look equally dark to me except the 1 on the right has the saddleback pattern. BUT I really have no idea, that's why I am asking:idunno

    Color simply isn't 100% accurate and vent sexing should really be done by somebody with some experience.
    I tried with another breeder to vent sex an almost full grown Seb youngster and its VERY hard and I don't mean just holding it but exposing the vent and opening it up. We never saw a phallus at the time so we thought it was a goose but it turned out to be a gander.
    I imagine trying to vent sex little ones must be much harder due to their small size.

    Gander goslings are not always all yellow.
    Some can have a silvery or light grayish cast over the yellow on their heads and backs.
    Some have saddles but no caps.

    This pic is a male on the left and a female on the right but they can fool ya.
