I'm sure they are you took their babies away from them, but you also have to protect those gosling who can not keep themselves warm, so let them grow up a while then give them to them. Mine got theirs at 3 weeks. and the temps were in the low 70's what are your temps now since your in spring?

 Western N.C ~ 17 chickens= EE's, Game, variety of bantams,1Light Brahma, 2 Black Australorps . 5 Muscovy ducks, 8 Indian Runners and 2 Buff Orpington Ducks, 1 Embden gander,1 Toulouse goose , 3 mini Dachshunds, 2 mixed breed, pond goldfish,  and a wonderful Husband who makes it all possible..

They may but if they aren't keeping the gosling warm then they probably won't keep the ducklings warm either.  I am pretty sure @jchny2000  had a mama goose adopt some Muscovy ducklings 


She did, very odd case. I had just put them outside, it was sunny and very warm. They got to nibble the grass, and she heard peeps, immediately attached herself. She still knows who "her" babies are, most have went to new homes now tho.

this was the day they first met, all curled up asleep.
