    Can you post pictures and tell me the differences so I'll know what I'm looking for.

    Do males have the knob and females not?

    I was told a it was a Chinese girl by the girl who gave it to me. Its white and has blue eyes. Its a lot quieter than I thought a goose would be.

    For some reason my phone isn't letting me add a pic, but it is the one on the last couple of pages with Angel Wing.

    I am getting 2 African Geese and 2 Pilgrims. I want to know how big the coop should be. They will free range at night so the coop is for the day. Also how big does the goose door need to be so they can fit in without having to duck?

    Well its not a gander. I may not know how yo tell one from the other, but She laid a egg today. As soon as I turned her out of the barn she went to creek washed her face and marched strait to the duck house got on the duck nest and laid a giant white egg. She is now sleeping in the duck house with the ducks.
