    I have a day old gosling that doesn't seem to be able to stand up. He also flops over on his back and can't seem to turn himself back over. Is there something I can do or should I just wait it out? Any advise?

    He may have had a very rough hatch, and need a day or two to rest up. But, please post on the "goose" thread to see what experienced folks have to tell you.
