    I have an Embden gosling with an eye problem and would like to know if others have had this problem. He holds one eye closed a bit and it seems slightly swollen or inflammed and is hardly noticable, but I can see a slight difference. Other than that, my Embdens are doing great. Any ideas?

    My baby pekin that I have with my gosling's had this. But, his was smaller than the normal eye and looks his eye is wet all round it. He grew out of it.

    Maybe it's been scratched? Get some terramycin eye ointment and use that for a few days to ward off an infection if it has been injured.
