    Here are some Buff Africans I purchased from Holderread this past Spring. They are about 5 months old here.

    Quote:That's funny because I have been thinking of getting browns [​IMG] I have one 18 year old brown African goose that most likely came from or is out of hatchery stock. She has a dewlap and knob but is very small. Your browns are gorgeous! I really do love my buffs. I had been wanting to get them for years. I am sure you won't be dissapointed if you get some. As for me I think I might have to add a nice pair or two of browns next year [​IMG]

    Lovely birds you've got there Jen C and Addicted2Quack. Can I ask Addicted2Quack from where did you acquire your birds?

    These are the ones I'm planning on keeping as my breeders for next year.

    I have a Super African I bought from a guy who couldn't keep her/him. He got the goose from Metzer's. Are Africans also known as African Dewlaps? Or are Dewlaps a separate breed? I ask because I see different types of African geese yet they all look the same other then maybe size. Ok, Brown African is different because of the color I'm sure. Here is a picture of mine. This goose is 3 1/2 months old. I do not know the sex and I have only one of this breed.

    Hi

    I may be wrong here as Im from England but I believe Super Africans tend to be purebred with a dewlap which your youngster is forming. Bit early to say what sex but does have a femine look about her head though that may change.

    A lovely bird though [​IMG]
