    I got some goslings a while ago, and we don't know what they are. (I would post a picture but I can't this weekend so if anyone needs a picture just say and I'll post one monday) they have black beaks (are they called that on geese?) and gray necks with a light, dull brown stripe on there neck. My goose book told me that's how you look for them but they didn't tell us if the other kinds of geese were like that. They've almost got all their feathers but they're still kind of fluffy.

    This is a pic of two of my african goslings at 5.5 weeks. Does it look like this?
