Can my goslings get too warm?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have 3 African goslings, a little over a week old now and they're doing great. My only concern is if its too hot. I live in Florida and its getting hotter during the day. I leave plenty of water for them and let them play in puddles of water, then dry them off... So can they get too warm? Or am I doing okay?

They can easily get too warm, especially in the sun. Keep an eye on them and get them to shade (and water) immediately if they start panting and gasping.

They're completely in shade, I have tons of tree's, there's also a small tub of water they can stand in and I change the water twice a day, morning and afternoon. I haven't seen any panting and they love playing in the water. They come inside if it gets too hot tho also. Until they're bigger and able to go into the pond they stay "cooped" up.
