    Ok, I'm trying to find out if all goslings can be sexed by color. I no you can with Sebbies but can you do it with other goslings? I have watched the Metzer Farm video which I have to say works great. I've sexed my runner ducks and I've been very successful with it. Do you know?

    No, and color sexing Sebastopols isn't always true if there is hidden color genes working. Only true pure white/white color sex. If either white or both white have resesive color genes toss color sexing out the window.

    I do have all white ones and the parents are pure white. Still, that is very good to know. I was hoping to be able to color sex but I guess that's out the window....... lol.
