8pm and I found 1 of 5 goslings who cannot keep up with his siblings or parents. He staggers, falls over and scrambles to get up. He was fine an hour before. I have no idea what to do and have never seen this in the 10 years I have been with geese. Please help me make it better. Thanks

It/they get all the non medicated chick starter they want and all the 2 acres of grass they want with a big pond and water. Thank you for responding and i will look up the lack of niacin.

Some water fowl just need more it would be worth the lil ones life to get either some nutritional yeast [human] or plain niacin 125mgs and begin giving it asap

Sprinkle yeast over feed will help all the goslings 1 Tab to 1 cup of feed daily till at least 10weeks old or 125mgs of plain niacin crushed and mixed int a gallon of water daily till same age as above. If you notice improvement in a few days that is what it was a niacin def.
No flush free or time release niacin.

It seems to be a little better this morning after put it into a house by itself with food and water. I let it out with mom dad and sibling and this time they are staying with it and it is keeping up with them but still wobbly. I will keep watch for today and by tonight i will house it up by itself and they extra brewers yeast/niacin while its family are on the pond thru the night. Thank you, everyone who responded.
