    Any Guesses on how to sex them?- I will not try myself as I have read it can hurt them permanently

    Sebs which are show quality have flowing feathers. They skip generations. I have 2 very nice utility bred which can throw the long feather /show quality. Zeena has some long feathers when not breeding. She pulled them all out to build her nest. Zander is fluffy. Both are Holderreads stock. I had correspondence's with Dave Hollderread last winter, and Zander is the gander he suggested for us. I am not sure how many of the babies will turn out with flowing feathers. It's a crap shoot. I am hoping to import a show/elite pair this fall.

    I NEED to buy Dave Holderreads book on geese as I am clueless on genetics. I believe Zoe will be a gray.
