    I have a young goose, about two years old. They're a mix of Toulouse and Sebastopol. For the longest time, I thought they were a gander, but I'm honestly not too sure anymore.
    Thoughts?

    EDIT: okay, never mind! She had a nest hidden in my goat pen with four eggs! Wish I had a boyfriend for her.

    I would find her a full curly sebastopol gander. Shouldn't be too hard to find one. Join the sebastopol FB group.

    Yum! I'd eat those eggs since they're not fertilized.

    You already know she's a girl, but for future reference, you will notice that hens that are getting close to laying have a lower undercarriage than males. They have a deeper, baggier "pouch" that host their reproductive organs.

    Such a cutie. You said she doesn't have a boyfriend, does she have some hens running with her, then?
