    They're white Chinese, aren't they? It's been years since we've had that breed & I've never been good at sexing geese until they lay an egg. Now we have an auto-sexing breed so it's much easier.

    The knobs on the males are bigger & males are sometimes slightly larger in size, though our girls were pretty big. And I think males have a higher, shriller voice while females make a deeper sound. When you approach them a male will usually stick his neck out in front of the female in an effort to protect her & challenge you, although one of our females was very protective of the other geese in her flock including the gander. That's all I can think of at the moment, but I would definately post in the Geese section if I were you because are lots of experts there. Good luck [​IMG]
