What breed, sex,
and what can I use them for on my homestead? New to geese...
When you get tired of watching ChickenTV, you can switch channels and watch GeeseTV. Or you can just eat them, but I get more enjoyment from just watching them do their thing.
They are not pure embdens, but look like crosses. The mostly white looks like my embden/toulouse cross and the dark one looks more like an embden/african cross.
Both are crossbreds. They look young, maybe late last years hatch. My gut says they are both females just from these pics. But I wouldn't swear to it.
They'd make good weed eaters, alarm bells, and egg producers "if female" on a homestead.
They actually look more like Pilgrim geese to me. If so, it's a pair: the white one is a gander and the darker one, a goose. More info on Pilgrims, a heritage breed, at The Livestock Conservancy.
Thank you so much!
Feather pattern and body shape is wrong for Pilgrims. They undoubtedly crossbreds.
