Hi today i brought home 2 new 3 month old baby geese, meant to be Pilgrims x American Buff
I was told they're both female, they both have blue eyes, the breeder says one of their girls have blue eyes and laid eggs, but everything I've read says their boys...
I dont really mind as they're just pets but i am looking forward to trying goose eggs...

I can’t answer that, but you might try Backyard Chickens, in their ‘other poultry’ “geese” forum category. Or YouTube. I noticed the other day there’s quite a lot on YouTube about sexing poultry.

They are big enough now, that you can easily check. Flip them over and check out the plumbing. There are videos online, its pretty easy.
