Some youngsters hatched earlier this year.

Here are some Buff Africans I purchased from Holderread this past Spring. They are about 5 months old here.
Great Pictures!! Been looking at the Buff Africans...after looking at the pics I think I will get them.
Quote:That's funny because I have been thinking of getting browns 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
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.
I have to say everyones birds look gorgeous!
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
