    My Embden gander is more in charge of my goose and my goose is a lot sweeter than my gander
    and my gander is a lot bigger.

    Hope this helps!

    Vent sexing isn't difficult, and if these geese are 1year+ it would be the easiest way to definitively sex them. I realize it sounds intimidating, I was quite sure there would be disastrous consequences the first time I tried it, but it went perfectly well. The main thing is to make sure the sexual organs are back in the bird prior to releasing them.

    There are videos on youtube and descriptions on several websites.

    Good luck!

    Also, ganders have high squeaky voices compared to the females. The females are always deeper voiced.
