Call your local wildlife office and they will tell you what you need to doWe found an abandoned gosling when we was taking photos of geese and ducks at a pond near our house. We went there 2 days in a row to take pictures, and the first day we came we found a mama goose with 4 eggs, we took some photos of her and didn’t mess with her after that. The next day we saw her and her mate swimming with 3 babies and 1 was abandoned. We was there for 2 or 3 hours and watched from a distance. But she never came to get her abandoned gosling who was calling for his/her mom. So when we was gonna leave we didn’t want it to get eaten by something or die and general, so we went to take it and it didn’t cry or anything, it calmed down from it’s cries and started peeping. So we took it home and it was wobbly at first and then after it was able to walk pretty ok, I put it in with the 4 goslings that I got from ideal poultry (and where it is currently now). They get along well and the baby gosling does come to me and follows me. I thought it might have something wrong with it and that’s why the mom abandoned it but it seems to be pretty good. And I’d like to get a permit to keep it, since I raised a Canadian goose before and let it go, but I’d like to keep this one. He’s sweeter then my domestic geese, and likes sitting next to you or in your lap while you pet him. He’s just a sweet gosling that I’d like to keep if I can.
