    I plan on going to pick up some goslings tomorrow. The farm supply normally has embdens, Toulouse, and Africans. The problem is that they are usually mixed together. Does anyone know the difference between the Toulouse and African goslings?

    I think Toulouse will have pale bills while Africans have a darker bill. I'm sure some one else will know for sure.

    You might do a search for goslings pictures here on the forum. There has to be something posted here.

    Ok, Mystery solved. [​IMG]

    With the help of twin oaks poultry farm website...

    Toulouse will have a "U" at the top of the bill while Africans and Chinese will have an arch!
