    im looking for an id on these geese if possible...the couple at the back of the picture and the grey gander at the right of the photo?
    im guessing the white geese are just 'farmyard' geese?

    many thanks!

    Looks like you have a pair of either small africans or big chinese in the back. The birds on the right look like pilgrims and the pair id say are embdens.

    I'd say they are hatchery quality Africans. Chinese Geese are really slender.

    The pair on the right are pilgrims. The gray one is not a gander, the gander is tge white one with the biy of gray on the breast. The goose is gray

    the big grey goose IS a gander, he's been breeding our girls and is the father of the girl next to him :)

    Funny, I didn't know Africans/Chinese could have orange bills (referring to the goose in the back with his/her head down)...

    Occassionally, hatchery birds aren't actually purebreds.
