    How are they doing today? sorry to be so late seeing your post; have been out sick & not on the computer.
    Google 'raising goslings' & you will find suggestions to help.

    just sit back and watch the antics. we had 3 goslings hatch from our momma goose last year - they were a hoot! we called them the "meeps" for the sounds they made. warning: they are VERY mischievous!

    probably not much of a danger right now - but make sure they dont get over heated. lots of water available, get the right feed, a bit of corn, and lots of grass clippings.

    we started with a shallow plate of water for them to splash around in, the moved up to the pie pan, a low plastic tub and then a baby pool. the finally graduated to the pond.

    you will love them - and let them eat the grass - you'll never mow again! (well.....)
