    The goose closest to the camera appears to be a Toulouse. Not sure about the other one.

    My Toulouse Mixed with Buff is pretty big but not a big as my Embden, My toulouse female isn't very big at all. petite actually. but not as petite as my buff girl. lol well did I thoroughly confuse you? serv hopefully will be on today and can get us straightened out.

    my goose is quiet small a lot smaller than the gander but my previous pair of geese were exactly like the gander
    the female was slightly smaller than the male but the female i have now is a lot smaller than the male

    The gander is a mix because the tips of his wings are white(pure toulouse wing feathers are brown with no white) and the female is too small to be a pomeranian so I am going with Miss Lydia that they are both Toulousexembden
