    I just hatched my first two Sebastopol goslings. I'm excited and think they are beautiful. I'm wondering if any of you with goose experience have any thoughts about what sex these two look like they might be. The mostly grey one is much smaller than the grey and yellow one. And the grey and yellow one has bigger feet and legs.

    I know it's hard to tell by color but any ideas?

    We could possibly tell the sex if we knew the color of the parents. If the yellow and gray goslings parents were both white and this gosling was white, then I would probably have to say that it is a girl due to how much gray it has. Other than that, there are a couple options to tell the sex. One way is to vent sex and the other is to just wait it out. Good luck and Enjoy your goslings! [​IMG]

    By the way, they sure are adorable. We raise sebastopols and we have 15 goslings right now at different ages in an assortment of colors including white, splash, saddleback, and one lonely gray. [​IMG]
