Birth Announcement ~ April 29

The Toulouse was originally bred in France and is one of the most common and popular barnyard geese.
All Toulouse Geese are gray. Their backs are a darker shade, over lighter gray plumage, and their undersides are pure white. The bills of Toulouse Geese are bright orange, as are their legs. The feathers are quite long and most Toulouse Geese have rather loose skin. Some Toulouse Geese have been color bred into white and buff shaded varieties. The name Toulouse is used for several types of gray geese descended from the European Greylag.

Now you are Grandparents!! Your goose is so elegant looking - even right after having multiple babies!

The babies are like tiny stuffed toys. Is the mom real protective or is she relaxed around you? What an exciting event! and wonderful pictures.
