    I know if you cross a buff colored gander with a grey goose you can create sex-link offspring, but is it possible to set up a buff/grey autosexing goose that breeds at least mostly true throughout the generations?

    I have a flock of American Buffs and a flock of Pilgrims. I'd like to cross some of them over next year to play around with an auto-sexing buff variety. I'd prefer to use the Pilgrims since I like their personality, but I can get some Toulouse to cross to the Buffs if there is a problem with the Pilgrim's genetics.

    If anyone has any information it'd be greatly appreciated.
