    Hi

    I've recently bought two goslings as pets and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me the breed/s and genders please.

    I'll attach pics in the comments.

    Your darker gosling is either chinese or african. The lighter gosling may be embden but you will have to wait a bit longer to be sure.

    Beautiful gosling but still too early I had 2 goslings last year I was posting pics of for months and some said gander some goose turned out to be gander and he was about 8 months old before I knew for sure.Maybe not quite that old for yours but it can take some time. Is there a specific reason your so interested ? Do you have more than this one? There is vent sexing but it isn't that easy and they can be injured if you don't know what your doing.
