    Just curious if anyone knows how to tell the sex with geese. I have gosling's that I hatched out, and would really like to know if they are males or females. If anyone could tell me how to that would be great.

    Only on sex linked breeds can you do this... with one exception. If you have purebred Embdens, the darker ones are females.

    I vent sex my goslings when they are around 3 weeks old. When they start to honk, you can tell by their voice. The males have higher pitched voices and the females have lower voices.

    If you dont know how to sex a gosling, I wouldnt do it. You can hurt the gosling unintentionally and even kill a gosling by doing it the wrong way.
