    So I've been looking online for an accurate photo of what the parent geese to my new goslings looked like, and I'm not having much luck. He said they were Buff Poms, but the pictures don't fit? Where "Buff" is like a peanut-butter type color, his geese were FAR lighter, almost like a coffee creamer? And their eyes were STRIKINGLY blue. I didn't get to look at them for more than a moment because as soon as they were brought out, they sold. Like, 10 seconds, no joke. They had SOME color, but it didn't look nearly as dark as what I see when I Google Buff Pomeranian geese, so my question is this...

    Is it possible what he has are more a Cream, or Lilac, or Lavender coloration? I was led to believe those are far more uncommon in Pomeranians? Does anyone here have some pictures I could go by?

    My goslings don't 'match' Buff Poms either, in that from what I can find, Buff Pom goslings have brownish down 'saddles', mine have a very light silver-ish? So light in fact, it's almost hard to distinguish from their 'yellow'. Cass was easy being very defined yellow and dark grey. They look almost like a 'faded' or 'washed out' look compared to her? Any ideas?? Here's pictures if they help?

    (My goslings. Where they have color, it's more a cream to silver-ish. They also do not have the bi-color bill or legs, solid pink on all 3, and the brightest blue eyes I've ever seen.)


    Any ideas would be greatly helpful, as I intend these babies for breeding, I'd like to know what I actually have! Thanks!

    His adults looked like this, only far lighter in the "colored" areas, and super bright blue eyes.
