    In a moment of weakness I bought three goslings at a sale. How can I tell what kind they are. My son said I want them, I bought them, and now I have slight buyers remorse. It's just that they were so stinkin cute. I'm so worried we got mean ones. I've looked at feathersite, but they all look alike as babies. I'll have to take pics tomorrow I guess.

    Yes, post some pictures. I'm sure someone will have your breed(s) and be able to help you. [​IMG]

    Here are the little fuzz balls, give me your opinions. It's very possible that they are mixed as I got them at a poultry sale.

    I would say they are Toulouse or a Toulouse mix.

    I agree - Toulouse or Toulouse mix or possibly a Pilgrim mix....

    Black bills. Not Toulouse or Pilgrim...

    So, they're either crossbreeds, African or Brown Chinese juding from the bill color.

    I think Toulouse or toulouse mix. The bill and feet color has just not started to change yet.

    My toulouse had bills just like that when they were babies. Now they are getting lighter.
