    Does anyone know of a way to sex american buff goslings? I know they say vent sexing is the only way, but isnt there any differances anyone else has noticed? I read that the male is louder and more vocal and the female is quieter and kinda oinks. I also read that the males tend to hold their heads high while the females low with a bent neck. Is any of this true. I will be geting some goslings next month but i dont have room to buy large amounts. Iv never vent sexed and it makes me nervous. Dont wanna hurt one. Thanks

    You can't tell sex with buffs as goslings, when they are mature most experienced people can tell by body posture.

    You can have them DNA sexed by sending in a few feathers to a veterinary clinic that offers it
