    Grey & Lilac babies! [​IMG]
    I lucked out and got a grey goose & lilac gander goslings from my grey (buff gene carrier) x lilac breeding.
    Hoping for some creams next year from lilac x lilac breeding.

    Lilacs have a pale grey-blue wash over the buff color as you can see here.

    Gorgeous and the difference between a Buff and Lilac can be clearly seen with the unusual pinky/buff colour with tones of blue. Absolutely lovely and I'd personally love one [​IMG]

    He is not only lovely in color he looks like he is going to have nice conformation. He has great "expression".
    Can hardly wait to see him feathered out!
