    Sorry I posted this on another thred as well....I'm still new to this! I got some Chinese geese last year and they were white and Grey mixed...so my question is, is this normal or do they have another breed of geese in them? and if so what? I have never seen a splashed goose before but LOVE my girl....does this happen when you mix a white and a brown Chinese goose or do you also have to have the pattern gene from somewhere....If a white and brown goose breed will the babies be either white or brown or can they be both like my girl?[​IMG]

    I am not an expert so maybe someone else would no the answer. I thought that your goose looks like a cross of white and brown chinese.

    I have seen several Chinese geese that have been crossed to Toulouse Geese that looked exactly like that. I would say that yes its most likely a mix...
