Gosling can't stand up

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a day old gosling that doesn't seem to be able to stand up. He also flops over on his back and can't seem to turn himself back over. Is there something I can do or should I just wait it out? Any advise?

Hi, I would suggest that you post your question on the ER forum - http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures and possibly the "Goose" thread. For sure i would put vitamin supplements / electrolytes in their drinking water, pending expert advice.

 

Good luck

He may have had a very rough hatch, and need a day or two to rest up.  But, please post on the "goose" thread to see what  experienced folks have to tell you.
