    I'd say COOL. He looks like a hybrid. We have had some come by that were hybrids but yours is neat. Thank for sharing .

    Quote:Maybe but I have seen snow geese (blue phase) that looked a lot like that.

    Gorgeous!! Man, if you could domesticate those genes... you'd have a beautiful strain to share with the world. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Im thinking from looking at her body type that its just a canada goose throw back. Just like you get ith some duck breeds. the colors just came out rong but its still a canada goose. i looked up snow geese and the color and body shape as off.
