    Well, not all grown up, they are only about 3 months old, but if it weren't for the behavior of the gander-ling and the grey feathers on the goose-lings, I wouldn't know who was who! The gander-ling still loves me, he'll let me pet him and he's always the first to shout a greeting. The girls are all stinkers though, they look at me like I'm gonna eat them [​IMG]

    My 'other' baby, who I bought at the auction thinking it was an embden, has turned into a chinese [​IMG] I am also starting to think it's a boy [​IMG] What do you think? The chinese is about 4 months old now.

    They are BEAUTIFUL! I have 2 adult females that I got last May and then got 2 more this May and my girls raised them as their own. I go all 4 of them straight run so was totally shocked to have gotten the first ones and have both females. My 2 younger babies are 2 months old and are good sized as well.

    My babies have grey in the feathers as well, one has trace in the tip of wing feathers and the other is in the back and through out the wings. I believe they are mixed but was wondering if they weren't are they possible males?

    Quote:Unlikely, the females are usually the ones with grey in their feathers. My 1 boy has been totally white since he got his feathers.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous geese! I really want Embdens, our property in the city though just isn't big enough.
