Also make sure you're giving them grit with the lettuce and grass, young geese can get impacted crops without it.
And are those two the same age? They are adorable!

@goslingmum Welcome to BYC. They are probably getting enough grit from the looks of where they are now but you can still put some out in a bowl separate from their feed just so you know for sure they are having enough, it is inexpensive, in the US anyway.
If you can't get water fowl starter you def need to give them some niacin[B3] in the form of Brewers yeast or "plain" Niacin in other words no flush free or time released. it is very important if we are using chick starter to supplement with niacin if now our water fowl can become lame and also have neurological issue If you decide on niacin get 125mgs and crush into 1 gal of water and they need this till 10 weeks of age. If you get Brewers yeast make sure it isn't spent grains from making beer or wine but the food quality type.1Tablespoon to 1 cup of feed.
They sure are adorable , can your lil one with the bum leg put any weight on his leg at all to help with balance?
