There is no such thing.Through DNA analysis they have all been found to be Snow/Ross hybrids.Still a rare bird.......1 Blue parent and 1 Ross parent.

Those are really rare!! they are a blue phase ross goose. we got a white-headed blue that was a blue phased ross. That is quite a treat to get one of them!! Nice work!!

"Although it can happen, it is extremely rare for the smaller Ross' goose to be found in a blue color phase. This rare anomaly in nature is thought to only occur from a hybridization of the Ross' goose and a blue gene carrying lesser snow goose. If you should ever be lucky enough to take a blue phase Ross' you will have shot yourself one of the rarest trophies in the waterfowling world. As far as today's research indicates there is no known evidence of the blue phase being found in greater snow goose populations."
