    I believe both sexes have dewlaps but males are usually bigger.

    He has a deformity to his beak. Its not a normal thing and could be genetic.

    I just got them from a Hatchery that went out of buisness this month due to health issues. I guess I can let them have gosslings and see if it gets passed on. Thanks, I wanted this breed for a long time and my husband and I now live with my father since last year. I was taking care of my mom before and while she was dieing. She new that I always wanted poultry and they both said NO. Last April came the chickens and then last July can the Ducks and now came finally my geese. If it is passed on then they will just be lawn mowers. Thats okay too.
