    I agree, but it´s difficult on behaviour only, because when you get two of the same sex, they can behave like a pair...I feel at least one is a male, but then I have a goose that didn´t manage to hatch out her own eggs, but she´s behaving like a gander after having "paired" with her sister to look after her sister´s young! Extremely protective against all other birds.

    Here is what I read serv, don't know if it means anything. Actually here Missy does more of the leading with Sam following most of the time

    Usually it´s my females who lead, but not always. Right now it´s the gtoslings who lead. The males generally bring up the rear.
    You´ll soon find out..if a pair, they´ll mate and produce fertile eggs. If it´s 2 females, they´ll try to mate and produce infertile eggs. If it´s 2 males, they will try to mate and then fight. [​IMG]
