    We had four baby geese fresh hatched. They seemed as if they were doing fine! Then suddenly one started freaking out and having a fit. We left it for a bit, and then when we came back it was dead! Shortly after the same thing happened to another one.

    Currently, a third one is starting to exhibit the same weird behavior. It is just freaking out and making panicked noises for seemingly no reason.

    We are unsure of the kind of geese they are. They were given to use by a friend. I think they are the ones that grow to have white feathers and orange beaks/feet. We have never had geese before, and are very new to this. Help!
