    I just got my first geese today. They are africans. I got 1 one year old gander and three juvaniles( they are 4 mos. old ) , hopefully I will get at least one female out of the three. Theese are the best pics that I got due to them not wanting to stand still.

    Do chinese geese get dewlaps? What is the dif. in a chinese and an african? That is what I was told they were, by the person I got them from. Now I am curious and really want to know.

    Upright posture, long narrow neck, smaller more delicate frame.
    They look like chinese.

    flock of chinese geese.

    african gander
    Heavier with thicker, shorter neck and stance close to that of a toulouse.

    Another african pair example to show the much thicker necks.

    Hope that helps.

    Edited to add I do think your geese are absolutely beautiful though and Congratulations!!!!

    They are beautiful!! I hatched out one African about 2 weeks ago. Had no plans of getting geese. But, it was in the bator when I bought it. Now, I'm in love. it's adorable and follows me everywhere.
