What's the difference between haben Hunger/sind hungrig?

It describes the same thing, but they are different grammtical constructions.

"Sind diese Gänse hungrig?" ist AUCH richtig!

No, it isn't. "the geese" is die Gänse.

diese Gänse would be "these geese".

Oh sorry, that was my mistake.
I wanted to write "Sind die Gänse hungrig".
And that would be the same as "Haben die Gänse Hunger".
I probably made the same mistake during the exercise.
Thank you very much, mizinamo…
