    I don't know, but you'll probably get more responses if you post this under the "Geese" section!! They are beautiful, by the way!!

    There are two ways to sex geese, and unfortunatly neither can be done over the internet. Vent sexing which is the easiest way, can be learned from many books and there are even a few websites out there that teach you how. The other way is to watch them and see how they interact with each other. But we have had two males geese together before and they try to breed each other. So its no sure sign if you see breeding. Vent sexing is the most accurate. We raise Pilgrims, so its really easy for us, but we've had other breeds that we've had to vent sex in the past.
