Now I am even more intruigued...that was the breed I wanted, but couldn't find any buff toulouse in Canada. I searched everywhere. And lucked out in finding my Buff Americans.

In a pinch, and a very good option, and especially if it's a Gander, she could breed it to a regular Toulouse, and the buff will carry through as a sex link and then breed the offspring from there...there are some nice Toulouse in Canada.

If your friend finds a Buff, or starts a project with a regular Toulouse, I would be interested in the project!

Is the Gander the buff? That is easiest, as they will give all the offspring a buff gene. But it can be done with a buff goose too.

Buff is a sexlinked recessive gene in geese. Mate a buff gander to a grey goose, you get 100% buff females and 100% grey males (these males will still carry a buff gene, but won't show it).

Mate a grey gander (not carrying buff) to a buff female you should get 100% grey offspring, but the males are carrying the buff gene, so discard the females as they are no use in this plan. If you mate them to your best grey females you should get 50% buff females. Takes longer to get buffs this way, but doable.

To breed buffs you don't need a buff female, unless you also want buff males... Wink

A female always shows the buff gene if she has it (unless she is white), a male can be a carrier while not showing it.

There are some outstanding greys in Canada, would make a nice start to the buff project. And I would love a buff Gander when they are ready  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing
