    My one gosling is beeing bullied

    Thank you, he is the same age. He is smaller but he looks quite healthy. Today I actually eat the duck pellets we feed them and the others did not bother him. The vet says the duck pellets are fine. We also feed them some kale and sprouted corn. I will keep looking at him, but it may be that...

    Feed problem

    They are still watching us from a distace, must say the gander makes sure of they. As far as the feed is concerned we baught the pellets they like and they immediately started eating it. We will just toss the bad food. Lesson learned!

    Feed problem

    I know, that is why we are considering just tossing what we have and buying the correct stuff. Fortunately it is not cold out and we are giving some vitamins etc. in their water that is for molting, as the geese and gander is molting, and it has some amino acids in it as well. Their condition...

    Feed problem

    Unfortunately I do not have of the old feed. The new ones are really bad, we are having a lot of rain at the moment and even though it is dry it is disintegrating from the moisture. My husband has to sift it to get rid of all the "dust" it makes. I think we are going to have to buy the correct...

    Thank You. You put my mind at rest. I will try and get a good home for some of them As I said the pair I cannot split and the gander is too aggressive he will never fit in somewhere else.

    space for geese

    My goslings are growing very fast now, now I have a problem with space. I do not want to be cruel to them so I do not know if they can be happy in a relative small space. The space we have is +/- 150 square meter and the 2 adults and the goslings in total are 8. We can feed them and there is a...

    Goslings not looking good

    Thank you, yes it is supposed to be hot here now so they are definitely ready for it as it is supposed to be late spring and now we get these cold spells very unseasonal. That is probably the problem, I tend to worry very easily and because the gander basically keeps us at a distance

    Goslings not looking good

    I am sorry they just look sort of scragly. They have funny pieces of things sticking out at the back, I do not know if they are getting feathers.
