    I was just given the pair of geese. I know one is a Goose, the other a gander and that they are not the same breed but what are they? Could they be crossers?

    Thanks

    Thanks, is his neck long enough for the Chinese? Right color leg?

    What about the Goose's bill, what should it look like to be a Toulouse? Someone said Pilgrim but according to my book she should white on her head for that right?

    Thanks much. I got these two from a gal that trains my horses. She got them at a swap, they were going to be sold as meat geese so she bought and rescued them.

    The one on the right is an African - we have one here and it is identical - the one on the left looks to be a Toulouse/African mix - they are both very pretty - congratulations! If the one on the right is an African male it will emit a noise similar to " why" - drives us mad at times but we are so very lucky to have him here - we rescued him and he is wonderful!
