    I just received 4 assorted goslings from Holderread Waterfowl Farm. They said it could even be their rare breeds. Maybe even sebastapol?? I was wondering what they could be. I checked their website, and i just think it could be any of them... Please help! i guess I am just impatient.

    Well it's too dark to see their colours. If you could take a picture in light it would be way better.
    One does look like a sabastopol but I can't see since it's too dark

    Looks the same as my Embdens.
    Do they have blue eyes?

    Embden and sabastopol goslings look exactly the same.
    I don't know what breed geese Holderread has but the first gosling looks like a Toulouse (or a mix).
    The second either Sabastopol or embden (and is a girl).
    The third gosling is also either sabastopol or embden ( and is a male).
    The fourth gosling looks like it's going to be a buff.
    Does Holderread cross breed?

    Oh that's exciting! As far as holderread doing cross breeds , not that I know of. I believe they started as a place trying to keep certain breeds alive. They try to keep them as pure as possible but I'm sure once in a while it happens. But thank you for your input. And you can tell it's girl just by the picture? Wow!

    With embden and sabastopol goslings the males are light in colour and the females are dark in colour ;)
