Okay, so I bought all three of these at a flea market, and I have no idea what they are.
I'm not sure, but at least one is a Canada hybrid. Perhaps one might be a buff or a buff hybrid. Don't know the third.

I agree with Miss Lydia about the Canadian Cross and the other more like an American Buff. Does have a full breast and deep paunch which at first made me think of a Buff Dewlap cross but the absence of dewlap on the picture made me lean more towards American Buff.
Lovely birds though
The first one is a female pilgrim, the second is definitely a canada or canada cross, and the third is a buff. Sorry can't tell you what sex the second two are. Female pilgrim are colored while the males are mostly white.
I'm not sure but I think I see the canada goose 'chinstrap' on the first one also - with the white speckles as a sort of overlay. It's also got more of a canada goose body shape - no lobes, more streamlined. I think the first two are canada crosses. #1 seems to have a bulkier neck than #2. If you have a bunch of mixes running around, you can get different doses of the genes. Like #1 might be 1/2 canada and #2 might be 3/4 canada.
I agree #3 looks exactly like an American Buff to me. And compared to the others doesn't she look like she's got a lotta junk in the trunk?
First 2 are totally canada goose hybrids.
