Hi all,

I have an order of Embden and Sebastopol goslings coming from Metzer in a month or so. The Embdens are staying with me, but the Sebastopols are going to a friend.

Will I be able to tell the difference between the two as day old goslings in the box, or should I ask Metzer to mark them in some way?

I believe I saw a picture of Sebastapol goslings once. They had curly down. Embdens do not. Please correct me if I am wrong. I think there will be at least a little difference.

Metzer marks them for you. There will be different color wire bands on their legs (which you will want to clip off as soon as you get them) and a key to what the colors mean printed on the back of the shipping form.

Thanks, guys! As beautiful as they are, I really don't want to be responsible for someone else's very expensive goslings by mistake! Good to know Metzer will mark them.
