    I have four geese and am assuming that there are two females and two males by their behaviors and voices. but i am not for sure, so can anyone give me directions on how to sex or telltale signs? thanks,

    If you look it up on the internet, it involves rubber gloves, and vaseline... no thanks! My goose is a man, he tends to sound like someone playing the trumpet badly, sort of a squeaking honk. Females tend to have a better, clearer, lower HONK. Also, males tend to be more aggressive, and are more likely to try to mate with everyone else, although females will occasionally try too. Good luck!

    Males have a high pitched honk, while the females have a low pictched honk. Also, ive noticed that only my males will hiss.
