    So I've looked up so many pictures on African and Chinese geese trying to find the difference. Is there a physical difference between the two? What is it? How can I tell the two apart?

    I'm referring to standard bred Africans and Chinas and not the ones you get from a hatchery. The Africans are heavier, thicker, and possess a dewlap while the China is sleek and slender with absolutely no dewlap. Go to Holderreads Waterfowl site and you will find pictures of examples of each. I'm speaking in terms of show animals and not these backyard, barnyard mutts people label as Africans and "Chinese". I might sound harsh in my approach but I'm just sick and tired of people labeling breeds that aren't true representations of what they claim to be.
