    I traded a super nice lady for this Pretty goose, It looks like he is a Embden Mix? but with what? Is it a Gander even?

    Lewis is SO sweet, he lets me pick him up, pet him and is even good at giving me some laughs.... he will crouch down when the dogs are near and then "frog hop" after them trying to bite them [​IMG] Just too funny!! And wonderfully, Izzy has stopped crying so much since he has been here.. I am very glad my girl has a new friend. [​IMG]

    I don't know what kind of mix he is, Bleenie but he's cute as a button and as long as Izzy's happy, I guess that's all that matters!

    Good luck with him!!

    Pretty Girl Izzy or Pretty GIRL Lewis? I am fine with a Lewis being a girl, if "he" is, I just want Izzy to be happy and they have been strolling around the yard all day together [​IMG] and SO much less honking! [​IMG]

    He does look like my male pilgrims, though I suppose mixes could look like that too. Pilgrim males are white with gray tail feathers.
