    a neighbour has brought round some baby geese(?) today, she found them wandering around her garden and thought they belonged to me...but i only have white geese so have no idea where these 2 little ones have came from! (that is if they even are geese, they stand very tall and straight, almost upright most of the time like an indian runner!) any idea on what type they are please? or a guess as to how old they may be? im guessing a heat lamp is needed, they are all fuzz and no feathers!

    The one with the dark bill looks either brown african or brown chinese.
    The other with the light coloured bill looks like a possible toulouse.
    You should be able to tell better as they feather out.
    They look to be about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks old.
    Very cute babies.
