    I'm trying to figure out the gender of my Chinese/Emden mix goose, I keep hearing mixed opinions from people.

    This is it. It doesn't honk much and when it does, it has a low pitch honk. It hasn't tried mating nor has anything tried mating it.
    It's over a year old and I'm unsure if it's started laying eggs yet because when my female starts laying eggs, I don't take any in, I just leave them for her to go broody.
    I should've counted them or separated this goose during laying season, but sadly I didn't, now I'm stuck trying to figure out what it is.
    I tried vent sexing it, but I've never vent sexed a goose before so I'm unsure If I did it perfect.
    I have photos of that, but I dont know if I'm allowed to post them here, so if there is anyone that knows how to vent sex a goose, would you mind if I sent you the photos?
    Thanks :)

    In the video it's like a light honk, it isn't loud.
    Do you happen to know how to vent sex geese? I vent sexed it this morning and I have photos of it, I'm unsure if I did it right though.
    Could I send you the photos?
