    I have a goose that thinks she’s a cat!

    Hello all! It has been a little while since we last posted. Our girl named Peeps is coming up on 5 months next week! She has a lot of cat siblings and I wanted to share what she has become attached to in the last week or so. I saw some “anti-anxiety” beds for cats online and I had to grab a...

    When can I let my goslings free-range unsupervised?

    My geese are almost 10 weeks old. They are both White Chinese geese. They have their own run and coop that they have access to all day long. At night, we lock them up in their coop since they are still young and we’d be worried if something might snatch them up during the night if they had...

    URGENT!!! What are some characteristics that can differentiate a male and female White Chinese goose?

    My White Chinese geese are 9 1/2 weeks old. I really hope at least one is female. I notice that one of them stands tall, has a higher pitched voice, has a smaller vent, tends to be noisy and has a larger developed knob (the one eating grass in the picture). While the other likes to stand more...

    Goose with leg issues

    Hi guys I have a gosling with leg issues. I know the general treatment is B3 which I have been doing for about a week now. I am seeing an improvement but he’s still unsteady while he’s standing. He can walk but gets tired easily. Right now I put two 500mg niacin capsules in the water and I give...

    To Wrap or not to Wrap? Angel wing?

    Tuesday will be six weeks old tomorrow. The last few days her right wing tip feathers have been growing much faster than the left and are angling out. My other three goslings aren’t having this issue “at least they aren’t yet.” The others are American Buff X Toulouse mixes, Tuesday is a Roman X...

    11 week old gosling shedding a lot of small feathers

    Hello all, I have posted many times on here since we are new to owning geese. This time is another new question. Our baby is 11 weeks old and just within the last couple of days she is losing a lot of smaller feathers. Especially when it is bath time. We wanted to just make sure this is normal...

    Goslings act fine, but can’t walk...

    My ten day-old goslings are falling ill, and I don’t know of what or why. They are currently on a chick starter formula with supplemented brewer’s yeast- not optimal, I know, but it is what’s available to me. They’ve also been receiving fresh grass with chick grit, oyster shell, and occasionally...

    Any ideas on helping Goose adopting ducklings?

    Hello - I have three ducklings that I hatched to fill out my mallard flock. One of my Chinese geese has been broody but not successful in hatching. I’m going to have to break her from her nest soon I think. My other Chinese goose and her gander have 4 goslings now and I’m feeling bad for my...

    Gosling with respiratory issues

    I have a month old gosling who has recently been panting and drooling a lot at night. He doesn’t do it all the time but last night scared me when this went on for over an hour. He was in my bedroom so it wasn’t too hot and he had plenty of clean water available. My current vet is out of town at...

    Genetics question

    I have a gosling that I initially thought was a buff, but I noticed he has blue eyes. My two girls that are the possible moms are a Classic Roman and an American Buff. More than likely the Roman is the mom. The possible dad’s are Leo and Parsnip, French Toulouse, and French Toulouse? Leo is...

    If a goose doesn’t want to be picked up much does that mean it is not imprinted?

    I’m raising four baby geese, they all hatched at different times. My two oldest imprinted pretty well on me I thought, but are still reliant on eachother as siblings. (I can’t say much for the other two yet as they just hatched in the last few days!) They follow me around from inside the cage...

    Gosling sibling suddenly attacking the other...

    I'll try to explain as much as I can, so be patient. But I have now 1 week and 2 days old goslings, 2 are the same breed, one is a different one, but they all came shipped together and have been siblings, pretty much, ever since. However one of my yellow geese, (I can't remember names, I'll ask...

    Wacky wing on my 4 week old male american buff gosling

    Hello everyone! I have a quick question about my 4 week old American Buff Gosling. We got them 3 weeks ago, and they are very well and happy, but my male gosling (Liam Geesan) has, what I think, is an under developed wing. I heard about angel wing, but I don't beleive that is the problem...
