    The one with the bump is a White Chinese and the other looks like a Embden... I'm not sure on sexing geese, I just know breed. Hopefully someone more experienced will know more.

    Ok. The Chinese looks like a female "male would have a larger knob". So if they are a breeding pair then the Embden is the male. However if they've not had offspring they could both be females.

    Good luck with you new goose endeavor. Geese can make great pets. And with them easily living into their 20s you could have them a long time.
