Color and genotype of this gosling? Please, help
Quote:All I can say is they are beautiful but pete55 maybe able to help you might want to PM him so he can have a look.
I think they may need a treadmill.
surely you don't have any Africans in the flock? that dark stripe down the back of the neck makes me wonder.
Not an easy one to ID but does appear a Grey in genotype and a slight possibility of being split to Buff but unlikely. Do you know the sex of your gosling as it cannot carry Buff if its a female?
The gosling looks like a cross Toulouse with a Dewlap Toulouse male parent but its mother looks like a Toulouse x African or Chinese. I think Toadbriar is correct as the dark stipe on the gosling's neck suggests an African or Chinese in the background of the mother as I think I can see a dark neck stripe area on her too.
She also has a 'black bean' to the tip of the beak whereas pure Toulouse do not (like the male parent). Can you tell us more about the mother's background?
Thank you all!
I think he's a male, but I'm not sure.
