    Can anyone tell me when a dewlap touliuse goose starts to develop a dewlap? I am buying some in a few weeks but the parents have yet to develop theirs. I wanna make sure it is a dewlap. They are about a year and a half. Thanks

    The parents will never develop the dewlaps. They should start to develop their dewlaps by 2-4 months of age. If you are buying these thinking they are dewlaps then you would be sadly mistaken.
