& Grey) Chinese
Geese at a Glance
You will often read that the knobs on top of
a Chinese's bill are significantly larger in males than
females. This is helpful if you see a very large knob, but a
mediocre or small knob does not necessarily mean you are
looking at a hen; other factors will need to be considered.
Full grown males usually weigh between 10-12
Full grown females usually weigh between 8-10
Males have higher-pitched voices than females. Males tend
to be quite vocal and louder than females.
Meanwhile, females are not nearly as musical
as males and have a lower-pitched and monotone voice. They make a
sound that is often referred to as an "oink."
If you pinch your nose and say "Oink" in a low voice,
you'll get the idea.
