    I have two 5 week old goslings which I have no idea what sex they are. I have tried vent sexing them, but have not been successful in determining sex. What are some ways to tell what sex they are. Behavior? size? voice? I did read somewhere that female goslings are darker. Is this true in your experiance? One of mine was darker, is much more friendly and calm. is also more talkative, also somewhat larger. I am hoping for a breeding pair.

    Darker babies are girls, lighter babies are boys, in white breeds.

    This picture of sebastopol geese shows it quite clearly:

    For my two Embdens then the male was a lot bigger and more dominate very quickly!
