Pilgrim Geese: Meet Daisy, Violet, Dandelion, and Clover

The goslings are here straight from the Lucasville Poultry Show! Meet Daisy, Violet, Dandelion and Clover. They are Pilgrim Geese which is a critically rare domestic goose breed here in the US. Pilgrims are one of the few auto-sexing goose breeds where you can tell the male and female apart by color all of their lives. As day old goslings, the females are a darker greenish color and the males are a lighter yellowish color. When they get their adult feathers, the females are grey and the males are white. Below are some pictures of the goslings.
