How to Differentiate African and Toulouse GoslingsJune 10, 2010
Oftentimes we are asked how to differentiate Toulouse and African goslings because their appearance is so similar.
The lighter down color in African goslings is grayer and in Toulouse it is more yellow. In the attached picture, the African is standing behind the Toulouse gosling.
This concave shape is probably due to the eventual development of the knob at the top of the beak in the African geese.
This same shape is also evident in White Chinese geese, as you can see in the photo showing a White Chinese (on the left) and a Roman Tufted gosling.
