    Ok, so I adopted a gosling. It looks like a sebby baby as it has a beige beak and legs. The rump is grey and a little poof on the head with some grey. I will post pics but do anyone have any pics of what a Sebby baby looks like? Are other goslings similar in color?

    I know that Roman tufted geese have poofs, but that's all I know.

    Here are some pics of my little baby. He was being bullied by other goslings so I thought I would save him.

    Cute baby.

    I would say a tuffed roman also.

    I raised 3 and they looked just like yours.

    Thanks! I saved him from the other goslings picking at his tail at the feedstore. I went to get feed as normal but I heard screaming in the backroom. I asked the owner if he would give me a discount for an injured bird (he had just a bloody back). The owner gave the bird to me for free (I go there enough lol)

    So now I have this little gosling and named it Gigi (short for George/Georgia)

    And so it is a Tufted Roman [​IMG] My pet Tufted Roman [​IMG]

    They were definitely picking too much if it was bloody, but a lot of times geese find it comforting to chew the feathers on each others backs when goslings, its perfectly normal.
