    Is that normal? Poor gosling. Hatched w/o fully absorbing yolk and still attached to umbilical cord. My hatching experience is limited to chickens so I have no idea if this is typical.

    Yep!

    That is normal for the first 24 hours or so.

    When Balbinka first hatched, the very first thing she did was shoot out a big green poop!

    Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

    Either on the forum, or through private mail.
    I personally cannot answer everything, but I sure can try or refer you to someone who knows.

    My goal is to help everyone I can and make the lives of poultry better through education, kindness, and knowledge.
    They are so underrated it's ridiculous. I feel that all chickens, geese, ducks, and other fowl deserve the best of care.

    Quote:I do too. I have chickens, geese, turkeys, and ducks. I free range all of them because I dont see the point in them living a caged life. I try to read as much as I can and research it all to make sure I'm doing everything okay. Some things you just have to experience before you know what questions to ask [​IMG]
