    We added a goose to our flock. We don't know what kind of goose it is or if it is a male or female. We are pretty new to raising geese. I'm just wondering if anyone might know what he/she is.

    I agree about the Toulouse identification. I have a pair of them. They're great geese!

    It looks very young. It will fill out alot and have a dark orange bill and feet when its mature. They're great animals.

    Thanks for all of your help. Yeah, he/she is still pretty young think it is only few months old. I'm glad to hear they are good geese. If things go well we might get it a mate in the spring.

    Looks like it should still be kept where it can stay warm for the night. hope it has some friends to hang out with.

    It does have a warm place to stay at night. I don't keep it outside. That is just box it liked to stay in. We have chickens that it is staying with right now.
