    it's hard to tell on geese especially white phased, and vent sexing can be tuff on them too.
    It's a male though Jen.
    Based off the red bill lining and larger eye patch and knot on the top bill

    Egyptians are very easy to sex- hens have a loud call, males hiss. Egyptians that are are a few months old can be sexed by voice.

    White Egyptian genes are also sex linked.

    I was thinking male, but I've never herd it make a sound yet. I tried vent sexing, and have done well with call ducks,baby emu etc.... but couldn't see anything on this one. [​IMG] thank you for the advice, now I need a girl for him..... LOL. Still wasn't a bad $10 spent on him I think. [​IMG]

    Not really I'm gonna hang onto them and see if I cant find a couple of boys. [​IMG] hope you find one though. If you take a regular female and put with him you can get both colors.
