Hi everyone, I've been lurking around this site for a while now but have only just signed up. I bought a goose egg from a pet store and hatched it at home - we now have a lovely pet goose named Goliath who is 5 months old. The people at the store told me he/she (I have no idea what gender my goose is!) is an Embden goose when I purchased the egg, but I'm not so sure if this is true. My goose is white and has dark blue eyes, but his/her beak and feet are a light pinkish colour instead of the deep orange I've seen on Embden geese online. Also, there are about 3 or so individual feathers (in random places) that are completely dark brown/black, in contrast to all the snowy white ones around them. Is my goose some kind of genetic anomaly, is it a crossbreed, or does it have some kind of diet deficiency? Please help, I love my baby goose and I'm worried there might be something with him/her!
