Anyone have any real life pics of geese genitals?

My pair of Pomms keep "changing" sex. What I'd sexed as a girl when I was given "her" earlier this year has started chasing me, acting like a protective gander. I grabbed "it" last weekend, upturned it and the penis was evident.

My other Pomm I bought from Tim as a gander. "He" has developed a large keel and looks box shaped rather than sleek and upright. I upturned "him" and I saw what appears like a large blister with a thin tube attached alongside it. Is this what a girl goose looks like or is "he" still an immature boy?

Hi,

I am having trouble myself on this site below the link

www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/agriculture/livestoc ... se-raising

there is a very graphic picture of their parts, I am not quite game enough to try it because they are quite large to tip over, they don't like to be caught and finally I have neary 30. But I have no idea what sex they are unless I see them on the dam, participating. Although I had been told the keel? was a help as some of mine have a double and some touch the ground and others don't although I think that was wishfull thinking as I can't find anything on the internet about that, also the males are suppose to have blue eyes but I think that is only in Pilgrims so I am back to having to tip them over and look.

Good luck
