    Ok, so a couple weeks ago I was in Rural King and they had geese. I LOVED my African Geese and have missed them since I lost them earlier this spring. I picked up about 6, There were two tubs so I took 3 of each tub they had. They must have just got them in because NO ONE could tell me what breeds they are... My best guess are Embden and Toulouse.... but I have no idea...

    Let me know what you think?

    They lighter ones are super friendly and love to be held and petted and I am SO pleased with them. The darker are a little more flighty but still very friendly and don't mind being held.

    Thanks in advance for you help!

    I would guess Embden for the white/yellow ones. They look just like my babies who are only 2-3 weeks ahead of yours.

    The saddleback is a gray saddleback not a buff, coloring is all wrong for buff. The Gray do look like Toulouse.

    Thank you everyone for your input! I am excited about trying out a different variety of geese this time around. I may still look into getting a couple more African since they are my first love of the geese world hehe!
    Here is a pic of my last goose before I lost her, she escaped her pen one morning and I think a raccoon got her, my other one died last summer and I have not idea why, she was only 2 1/2 years old:

    My Royal Palm Turkey was raised with my two geese and he is LOST without them now... still trying to find a couple Royal Palm hens to keep him company.
