Have you tried googleing 'goose breeds' and comparing the pictures?
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Farmyard is probabley meaning cross breed. I have 2 embdens which are large with pure white plumage and orange beaks/legs. they are boys and have slightly thicker necks than the girls and also a slight bump on the beak. I also have one youngster which was supposed to be the same but has grey feathers mixed in and as yet I can not decide if it is also a boy. If a boy he is going to be for the table.
