    Do these Hybrids "Doink" or do they cackle like greylag descendants? Also What do you plan on naming the hybrid, I love how they look!

    They also look like the famous steinbacher in grey version and if geese have black toes means that they are always a cross of a brown african or chinese and im this year gonna experiment goslings with my big african gander and my large embden female :D

    Beautiful geese! They look a lot like my original pair of African/Toulouse cross ganders without the white splash markings. They have also been mistaken for steinbacher, but they are lightweight, can fly pretty well, and do not have any aggressive behavior. [​IMG] Is your avatar picture a grey dewlap Toulouse?
