    My "weeder geese" which appear to be African hatched 4/25. Any hints about what to look for to help sexing them? Several are later feathering and sporting fluff on back of head and neck while others are smooth. One is humongous. The others pretty standard in size...Females will be mine, males go to someone else. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thanks so much Pete 55 for the info. After watching the video I have put out a call for assistance in my area! I am a nurse but foresee lots of wincing and crying if I try it on my own and I am sure the goslings would not like it either!
