    I have 3 Canadians. Two mixed or other breeds? The have a hump on the top of their beaks and when the eggs hatched there was an all white one that died [​IMG]
    Are Canadians known to be a fidgety breed? Mine are terrified of me. All of my other birds (pigeons, ducks, chickens, and the other two gosling's) love me. They follow me around the yard to be fed and everything. How can I get them use to me? I try and be as calm as I can around them and make no sudden movements. Tomorrow I will try and grab some shots of them.

    I have a Canada, bout 3 weeks old. She imprinted with us so she is very close and cuddly. He/she does not have a hump on bill. You may have something else.

    Quote:you could have a African gos. lots of people think they are canadians, but they have the know on their nose. They usually start to get it at about 4mo. and it grows larger and larger until they are fully grown. They also will grow a flap under their chin called a Dewlap. The Africans are beautiful geese.
    Thanks
