    Can anyone help me figure out the sex of these guys. They are 7 months old now these pictures are 2 months old I will take more tomorrow and put them up.

    IS there something I can look for? one is taller, is more vocal and is a bit more lets say brave lol.

    There is only two things you can do: a). wait for eggs or no eggs or b). get them DNA tested.

    Sometimes you can tell ganders from the gooses by watching them and seeing the personality differences, but not always. Good luck

    Post some updated pictures of the sebastopols for everyone to look at. They will be a bit more easy to maybe tell what they might be.
    I know I bred my pure white goose with our grey gander I had two goslings hatch a grey splash gander and a grey female.
    Do you know the parents of these??
