    here are a few more pics-the ducklings( about twice his size) will go over and lay their neck across his shoulders- any idea of significance in that?

    It would be hard to tell (for me) other than it looks like it will be a white goose [​IMG] Emdens are very large geese, and chinese are considered a small goose. Chinese have knobs on the top of their bills that start developing early on. You'vd got some good front shots, someone experienced could tell better.

    Whatever she is, she is being loved and held and you will have yourself a very sweet little pet goose if you aren't careful [​IMG]
