    Hi everyone! Last Thursday, I walked in to the feed mill to pick up feed for the next two weeks and came face to face with a bin of adorable little goslings. If they had been ducklings, I could've walked by without bringing any home but the guy told me that they were shipped goslings by mistake and because of that, he was selling them half price. I couldn't resist and brought two home with me. The kids named them Sunshine and Lollipop.

    Now, I was told that they are grey Toulouse but the more I look in to things and the more I research, I'm thinking that they may be African. Based on this site anyway: http://metzerfarms.blogspot.com/2011/03/how-to-differentiate-african-and.html

    Here are some more pictures, please tell me what you think. The pictures in the bath tub are from today.

    I'll be happy either way (though I'm partial to African geese). They are the sweetest little things. They follow me all around the yard every day when I take them out for a little walk and love to swim in the bath tub :)

    Thank you! I'm hoping that's what they are. I'm absolutely loving them so far!
