    Hi,

    I've just hatched to gorgeous Sebastopol goslings and wondered how quickly do they need feed and water?

    Also how long can they stay in the incubator before moving?

    Thanks for your help! [​IMG]

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Congrats on your new goslings :celebrate I'm afraid I've never hatched goslings but I'm guessing that as soon as they are dry and fluffy they will be ok to move out of the incubator and to the brooder. Here is an article on goslings ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/raising-and-caring-for-goslings
    Hope it helps you out. Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow
