    So I finally got some pics of the three goslings I got. If you haven't seen my other posts, the man I got them from said he had African Grey Toulouse and White Pilgrims....I know there are no such breeds as those two....so I am curious if you think I actually got toulouse geese or not!Here are the pics...
    Notice one is darker grey with a grey bill and feet...

    There are 3 total but two look exactly the same in bill color,foot color and down.Two are light with light bills,feet and only one is darker with grey bill, feet

    The one on the right is a gray Toulouse-don't know about the African part though. It looks like the gosling I have now and like my 1yr old did when it was a baby. The other looks the same color as one I got last year. My dog killed it before its feathers started coming in so I was never sure of its breed.

    Both are very pretty babies!

    So, are they crosses of African and Toulouse?

    I cant guess but you can compare pictures to my pictures of Henry. His young baby pictures he had a black bill then it lightened up to pink. He is toulouse.

    I guess I was mainly referring to the dark billed one.

    The lighter one looks like she has white feathers coming in on her shoulders. Maybe she is a cross between pilgrim and Toulouse....or not. [​IMG]
