    Kind of hard to tell at this point. Try vent sexing. And sometimes the bigger one is usually gander, you know the one who holds their head higher. They're usually more bold too

    It looks like one the right one has darker grey which would be female the lighter grey will be gander. they sure are precious bring back memories when my Embden was a baby and that was almost 8 yrs ago. Hope Kitty likes goslings and won't try to eat one. Is that right one is quit a bit dark than the other or is it the lighting?

    in the sun they look the same. But the one is very very slightly darker. So much so its hard to tell.

    I've vent sexed ducklings. Is it best to wait til they are a few days older?
