Hi David,
Those goslings are gorgeous, but then geese are my fav birds. :D :D
The 10 week old is impressive, I imagined that because toulouse are supposed to be slow to mature fully, the youngsters would take ages to look like a proper goose, obviously I was wrong :roll:
Regards
Sue

Hi, well they take up to 3 years to become fully mature- he/she hasn't got a dewlap or much of a keel yet but he/she is very big for 10 weeks :D
regards, David :)
