    My guess would be they are Gray Saddleback Pomeranian or a mix related to the Pomeranian goose.

    Thank you so much! Would you happen to know the genders by looking at them? The sweet couple we got them from told us the mostly grey one is female and the mostly white one is the male, however, my 13 y/o son came running in this morning saying he saw the "male" laying an egg!!?? [​IMG]

    Sorry but on that your guess would be as good as mine. If the "male" laid an egg then you know he is a she. The other may be either male or female. If they mate that will be a give away. Since it is the beginning of the mating season for geese you will know pretty soon if there is a male. He will hiss and challenge your presence around his mate. Of course, you may have two females which will be nice since you get the eggs without the aggressive male behavior.
