Just bought 4 Pilgrim goslings from a private party. I was told the two males were 2 weeks old and the 2 females a week old. They were incubated eggs not parent raised. The 2 younger females are fine but the two males have bald spots on their heads, side of necks (one worse than the other). They were this way when I bought them and the owner said they rubbed their heads on the metal brooder? Now I wonder if this was the case. Observed them nibbling at each other immediately and sometimes the females too but they scurry quickly out of the way. Have them in a very large brooder area w/food, water, warm light and I pick grass for them daily. Is this picking normal goose behavior to the point of balding or is this a sign of being overcrowded perhaps by the first owner? I bought a little portable pen yesterday and put it on the lawn so they can graze under my supervision when its warm enough outside in order to give them more grass and space options. I am new to geese raising so would appreciate any opinions you pro's out there have on this issue. Thanks in advance.
