    Okay, so we just got new geese from this place.. She said they were only a couple days old. But, they don't have egg teeth, and my other geese who were about a week and a half old did. They're tall, but they're really skinny.. Just about the same size as the one we got right out of the incubator.

    I just want to know how old my new ones are.. So, does it vary, or do they get rid of them about the same time universally?

    Btw, I have no idea what breed they are. They're supposed to be toulouse, but they might be canadian or half canadian. Apparently, a canadian flocked invaded their field, so some of their toulouse are half toulouse, and apparently they even hatched out some full canadians this year.

    I'll post pictures later, when I get home..
