    The breeder is a veternarian in Morgantown, WV. and he's 98% sure it's a male/female pair [​IMG] Im hoping it is. The "male" has thicker legs and is, overall, a bit larger. They are still babies but hatched at the same time.

    Huh, I didn't even think of that... is that a typical goose thing? I've never even touched one before... now I can't put these down.

    I don't have geese iether but have read about them because I want to get some Sebastopols next year. The gander will always protect his wife. Even if you are not really a threat.

    Erin! They are absolutely gorgous! [​IMG]

    You say that you can't put them down...do they let you handle them very much?? And how old are they? And have you named them??

    I can't wait to see your idea for housing them! You ALWAYS come up with such great housing ideas. Any ideas??
