    I have 2 older goslings that are from Buff Dewlap Toulouse X White African. The two are very different in their coloring...Just wondering if they were sexable by color(since they are so different) or they just have different colorings. The darker one has some buff in the middle of the top wing area(really not much there and really not showing up in the pics).

    Hi

    I think you'll find that they'll be both Dilute males from that mating and they may vary in pattern due to the imcomplete dominance of the diluting gene. Any daughters should have been Buff.

    Hope thats helps.
