    I recently purchased a pair of sebbie goslings. One came with wry neck and I lost it. Seller is going to give me a discount on an adult to make up for it.

    Problem is I need to know what sex my gosling is so I get the right sex adult.

    Any help appreciated. :)

    Impossible to tell. Can the breeder vent sex?

    White Sebastopol goslings are auto sexing. I know females have darker saddles and cap than ganders (which can be silvery to almost all yellow). This one is tough for me because it's the darkest of the clutch, yet not dark enough for me to be confident with female. I'd lean toward male, except then that would mean all the offspring were ganders. Was hoping a more experienced person when it comes to auto sexing could chime in.

    Or did you mean it's coloring was ambiguous?

    Breeder cannot vent sex. I can sometimes but I'm not confident in my skill. I could try again.
