    New to Sebastopol geese. Hatched out these 4 at the end of April. Any ideas on color? They came from a mixed color flock.

    They dont look like Sebastopols to me... More like Production toulouse.

    If they are they are very very poor Grey Sebastopols.

    Sebs only come in White, anything else is mixed. I agree.. those are not Sebies in my opinion.

    Yes, I know the white Sebastopols are the only recognized color and that the colored Sebs are mixed. Sebs or not, they are cute with great personalities. And for being only 9-10 weeks old, they are awfully bossy [​IMG]

    Hi

    They look like 4 Greys but you'll have to keep watching to see how their feathers develop. Im due to collect my first pair of Sebastopols at the end of summer and Im looking forward to owning some. Although not yet recognised there are some very attractive colours being developed in the States.

    You've got some very cute Toulouse geese!
    Judging by not just the feathers, but the conformation as well; those are not Sebastopols.

    Quote:Not necessarily. I hatched 3 splashes out of pure white parents.
