    OK, serv, here´s a thread for us to post our photos for you to guess what it is....breed, sex......they can be photos of ones we already know, to let serv know if she´s right or not (1%chance, apparently of being wrong), or ones we don´t know yet but can confirm in due time...

    [​IMG]OK so you reckon the one nearest is male, and the bigger one is female and that she looks a bit like a greylag with the length of her beak...I agree! Her(?) mum´s got a long beak too. (S)he is very gentle and sweet. The younger one is very nibbly. The father of both is of auto-sexing type and the mum (possibly of both, but definitely the older one) is a saddleback mixed-breed. I´ll confirm sexes when I know for sure, but I´m inclined to think you may be right.

    this is a very odd looking female and the breed is either embden or roman(not tufted)

    Which gosling? the younger grey one? I´ll try to get a body pic for you.

    And what about the white one with a patch on its head?
