    I got these little guys today. Just wanted to make sure they are what the man told me they where. Thank
     
  2. Safe guess is that they are Toulouse geese. Here is a picture of mine when they hatched a couple of years ago.

    Those are some mighty stocky goslings. Dewlap or production?

    I'm wondering if you have a little girl and a boy there judging by color, too!

    He said he sales them in male and female pair. I'm not sure they are dewlap or production

    Then I figure the little fella on the left is your gander, and the right is the goose. Darker greys tend to be hens, lighter greys tend to be ganders, though there is variation. I'm only just now getting an eye for Toulouse goslings - it's much easier to tell on a breed like Embden or Sebastopol.

    If they were dewlaps he'd probably be advertising that + charging you quite a bit, so they're likely production line, which are supposed to be sweet birds! Love how fat they are. Be sure to give them nonmedicated starter feed, and make sure they get their B vitamins.
