    So just before Christmas I'm hoping to get a pair of geese and a few ducks. I'm an expert on ducks but hardly know anything about geese, I've read up about and what they like to etc. But I don't know how to sex them can some tell me the differences between a goose and a gander....[​IMG]

    Quite hard with far away pictures and I'm judging on the first picture. The large white goose in the background is male along with his female which looks like a pair (brown and white goose).
    There's another large grey goose in the background who looks like another male. The white goose in front is male. There's 4 more brown geese and it looks like 3 females and a gander.I can see two white females (one looks like another male in one picture tho).
    The other brown and white goose is too hard to identify at the angle.
    This is just what I'm seeing from the far away photos ;)
