Feeding New Goslings

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I've just hatched to gorgeous Sebastopol goslings and wondered how quickly do they need feed and water?

 

Also how long can they stay in the incubator before moving?

 

Thanks for your help! :thumbsup

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join us here! Congrats on your new goslings celebrate.gif I'm afraid I've never hatched goslings but I'm guessing that as soon as they are dry and fluffy they will be ok to move out of the incubator and to the brooder. Here is an article on goslings ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/raising-and-caring-for-goslings
Hope it helps you out. Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
