    We purchased 2 Sebastopol Eggs from pips&peeps.

    2 for 2 on shipped eggs, Woo Hoo!!

    In the end we had to help both out as membranes were very tuff.

    Hoping for a boy and a girl, only time will tell.

    Actually that first post has the wrong photo. It is of our first two sebbies hatched in December and who are now looking like geese.

    Yesterdays hatch:

    They look like a male and female. Arent they autosexable? The males are lighter and the females darker. The males are often all yellow goslings.

    I have always been told the yellow ones at hatch are the males and the darker ones are the females. Not always 100% but at least 90 - 95% accurate.

    That is my understanding as well, although we are not experts on the subject as of yet.

    We hatched two "darker" goslings earlier, and were crossing our fingers that we would get at least one male this time around.
