    I got two geese today from the feed store. I was told that they were Toulouse. When I got them home and looked closely at them, I am not sure that they are the same breed. DH says that they are just a male and female. One is more yellow on the neck the other is more yellow on the neck. One's beak goes up at the top and the other one's beak is more straight across the top. What do you think? The pictures aren't great, but they just wouldn't stay still.

    They are soooo cute. I think that you may have two different breeds, but I am not an expert on goslings. Maybe an African & Toulouse.

    Hopefully someone that knows something about geese will post soon.

    Good luck,

    They look like they will be the same color, one might be a brown chinese while the other could be a brown african.

    Thanks. I was hoping that I got a pair of the same breed, but I guess I didn't. The feed store only knew what the White Chinese was. The others said "Breeder's Choice." I can't wait to see what they look like when they grow up. They are so fun. We played with them in the dining room last night and they followed my son all over the yard today. They were so cute.

    The little one is a Toulouse and the other is a Brown African.
