    Too young to tell without vent sexing (that's specific and careful way of looking into the opening of the cloaca to see whether or not the gosling has a male sex organ).

    Was afraid of that, thanks. Thought I read somewhere the color of the beak could tell you, but didn't know if that was accurate.

    Toulouse need to be vent sexed or DNA sexed to know gender before old enough to begin laying eggs.
