    Having a pro teach you how to vent sex or DNA testing (about $20.ea) will be your best bets. Visually sexing geese can be iffy.

    Either way your geese look very slick, clean, and healthy. Congrats.

    You would need to have them DNA sexed if you do not know how to vent sex. Then again they should start laying anytime from now till the next 30 days for you (give or take). Ours have been laying since January.
