Metzer's website says that you should be able to tell the sex of Embden hatchlings by color, that the grey fluff on the females are darker than the males. http://www.metzerfarms.com/EmbdenGeese.cfm?Breed=Embden&BirdType=Goose&ID=E&CustID=38385 Has anyone taken notice of their goslings and found this to be true? And if so, can you help me determine the sexes of these goslings by their color? I have an idea, I want to see what others think. By the way, they were all hatched by bantam hens, it's quite remarkable! And these chicken Mamas are doing a fantastic job of mothering their big unusual babes. Today it was raining and both hens had their goslings tucked up under their wings. The Dutch bantam managed to completely cover her baby. The other mixed-breed hen had an easier time covering her two, but one of them had its head & neck poking up between her wing & back, it looked like a periscope, it was so funny! Here is Biscuit & her two: And Chiquita with hers, it is also smaller than the other two: What do you think they are?
