    Hi everyone! This is my first time posting. I have been referencing this site for a couple of years now and would love to connect with others! I am from Ontario, Canada [​IMG] and I have a Chinese Grey Goose who is 7 months old. This is Li-Li. Still trying to figure out if it's a goose or gander. I will take some better close ups later. This is my favourite pic of her. I have hand-raised her since she was a day old [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Welcome to BYC! Beautiful goose, and I have to say gander. The neck and legs are a definite hint towards boy.

    He is definitely a he, and a very handsome fella. Yes, you need a Lady goose for him! And the eggs are flat awesome, DH loves them for baked goods.

    @pamperedgirl Where is he from, possibly you can contact the breeder to find him a goose? I have an order in to Meyer hatchery to update my flock genetics. My Brown and White Chinese are all related, so its time to add new genetics. I have kept several goose breeds and the Chinese are the best layers for sure.

    well I'll be darned! Went out to put the goose away and there was an egg in the coop! This goose is a SHE! She's 9.5 months old. I was so thrilled!
