I posted in the geese forum about this to help the remaining 4 geese but my big worry is my chicks. They are healthy at this point but they are in an adjoining pen. Our 2 story mini coop has 2 apartments. Geese are in one. Chicks are in the other. All seemed very healthy but were staying separate from flock until they are older and they have a health all clear. No clue why the geese are dying. One I just had a feeling it would die. It was really struggling with temperature. It seemed to need to be under a hair dryiner 24/7. So I was not worried but now one of the more hearty ones died unexpectedly. No funny breathing, eating well, drinking, stayed warm. No clue. The only worry I have is it had odd red scales on its feet. I cannot think of why that would be. Bedding should have been fine. Nothing to irritated and everyone was cleaned at least once a day. So I am thinking maybe its mites, or lice. I have no clue. I read what I could and short of running out tonight with a flashlight and checking u nder tails I do not see anything and I checked everyone. I bought a water soluable antibiotic. Tetracyclin in think is what is was marked. I also got seven powder 5% which says not to use on animals but its what was listed on the forums. I have no clue what I should be doing next. I have 4 goslings still looking hale and hearty. Also 14 chicks thriving. I have not lost one chick and I don't want to start now. Advise please. Do I treat or go out with the flash light. I am itching like mad just thinking about them having mites. No itching before hand but uggg praying thats not it. So here are the facts I have. They do not share feed. Each has its own type of feed. ( gamebird for the geese) The chick feed is medicated. Water is kept fresh. The geese are allowed clover and grass. Whatever they can manage on their own when they get a little outside time. Oats are given as treats. I have not offered any type of veggie yet. My mother did have them in the greenhouse with her so I am praying wandering jew is not poison to them. She also put a little dish with water in it so they could bathe without trying to wash in their waterer. The geese are roughly 6 to 8 weeks along. The chickens are 5 to 6 weeks along.
