I started our goslings off on game bird starter (30% I think) but I have started to wonder, as grazers, should geese and goslings eat a grain based feed? Wouldnt something like Rabbit feed be more suitable?
What should geese and goslings eat?
I think a feed formulated for their species would be better. Of course if you can graze your geese year round then that is the best way to feed. Here where I am there is nothing for them to eat now except their grain and what greens I buy for them at the store. If you've ever driven by a field where wheat or corn was raised sometimes you'll see flocks of wild geese[Canada's] out their picking up any left overs. So they dif like grain.Some geese owners use soft grass hay in winter also along with grain, I understand geese don't care for alfalfa.

They really do get in the heart don't they. How about some pics?
Aww I am so sorry what happened? She is going to be extremely sad and lonely. You might check craigs list for geese.
Time to cover the 8' enclosure . Poor thing. Maybe they spooked her is the reason she went over top. I am thankful Gilda is safe.
