Gosling eating hay

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My geese coops all have straw floors. At what age can I put an incubated gosling in with the adults? He's three weeks old, and still wants to put everything in his mouth. He had plenty of food and water, wasn't overheated and had lots of room. I never had this problem with the other geese that were hatched by their mother. He was extremely accepted by the pair of geese I put him in with. He just wasn't too fond of them, and wanted me. He has been on flannel blankets. Thanks

Put him in with them. I have put some in at  a  couple days old, and  some at  several weeks old. If he is  an only, he needs to  realize he is a bird... You might put him with a separation during the  day, and  remove it at night ...all should go well... then I  add some  Flockraiser to  the  geese food, and separate so  the  babies have their own food... (he may freak a bit, because he thinks he  is  people....so  you might have to  have him separate for  a couple days .... use your judgement....(in other words he  may be afraid of them at first)....
