    Hi there everybody!
    My one month (and something) gosling is snoring at her sleep. I noticed that a couple of days ago. She is at the phase of changing voice as well but that snoring during the night and through all night doesn't seem normal to me, not that I know, that is why I am asking you, any ideas? What shall I do? Is this an indication of something serious???

    I don't think you need to worry. As long as your gosling is otherwise happy and healthy and not displaying any other symptoms of malaise, it's probably just a phase.

    When my goose was growing up, she did go through phases of occasional snoring, both a whistling snore and one that reminded me of a lawnmower. She's now three years old and fit as a fiddle.

    Hahaha!
    I must say I wish the best for you and your geese or other animals you are taking care of.

    These two last days, she is not snoring as much as she used to, so I guess you are right, she looks like a very strong and healthy gosling so she must be fine... She is huge though, hehe, like a true, beautiful, white, blue-eyed Embden, I am almost "in love" with this breed! [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks!!!
