    You can't tell sex at this age without vent sexing. Since they are not getting any white feathers and don't have black bills/feet, I would say they are probably production toulouse.

    They look like Toulouse Geese (in which you cannot determine the sex by feather color).
    Or Pilgrim Geese (females are born darker in feather color and mature to be gray, males are born somewhat lighter and mature to be white).

    They are precious, either way!
