    I had five toulouse goslings, they are 2 weeks old, they were doing fine but in the last 48 hours I have lost three. They get weak and seperate themselves from the rest and then die. All this happens rather quickly. Their is a small chance they got medicated feed but Im not sure about that. Anyone have any suggestions? I dont want to lose anymore!!

    I don't have any advice for you, but wanted to say I'm sorry and I hope that someone has some great advice soon. Poor little guys!

    It might help if you know what the poop looks like, whether or not they are eating and drinking, etc.

    Good luck with this. I hope your little ones are ok.

    If there's a chance they got medicated feed they are probably being poisoned. Replace the food promptly, make sure they get plenty of water and cross your fingers. There may be nothing more you can do than hope. [​IMG]

    Thank you, I just dont know what I'm doing wrong. Everything else is fine- an old farmer I know said that maybe they are being handled too much and I should leave them all be.[​IMG]
