    Lady at Southern States told me the gray one was an African gray and the yellow one was a white Pekin duck. lol. So I'm thinking they had no idea what they had. Any ideas? I've never had geese before. Honestly, I've always been afraid of them b/c a neighbor had a big mean gray goose that always bit our behinds while we tried to run through their farm as a shortcut when I was a kid. lol. But my MIL talked me into giving them a try. So we'll see... They're super cute so far and I love their peeping noise. It's cuter than ducks or chicks even, imo! lol

    I have no idea but they sure are cute. You will be amazed at how fast they grow. I have a two week old that is just HUGE!! it is probably a foot tall at the top of its head.

    Well, if she charged you for a Pekin duck instead of for a goose, her mistake was good for you.
