    I just got 4 French Toulouse goslings last week that are SO adorable (and smart it seems)! I just have a few questions.

    They're tagged so I know the genders right now, but will I be able to tell them apart when they get older? How can you tell a goose and gander apart once they're grown? Size? Markings? Voice?
    Also, any idea how much brewer's yeast to sprinkle on their crumbles? I don't want to give them too much or too little!

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    ll geese with nobs tend to be so much easier to tell apart.Ganders nobs are bigger then females.Ganders are also louder,and usually are somewhat bigger,hens are usually smaller,and almost have a quacking sound.Also,hens have a lonp dip by their vent/stomach area,she will almost look over weight.

    Exciting! Do you have pictures [​IMG]
    Our current baby geese are 4 weeks old.
    I have taken them out daily to get their fill of grass. Since this is their natural diet. And they would prefer grass over their all flock feed for sure! Lol
    And they eat nutrena 'all flock ' with nutritional yeast
    For brewers or nutritional - 1 tablespoon per cup of feed

    They are so big and so precious.. Thanks for sharing @Ducks4us .. I was reading another thread and saw you had posted some pics from last week. I am going to have to stay in tuned with the goose thread so I can keep up with Norman and Meredith [​IMG] Just want to squeeze them both.
