    I've purchased several pilgrim geese this spring 13 total. I found one female dead last week at 2 weeks old and one 4 week old female died today. They never showed signs of any issues just poof dead flat on the floor. I have heat at about 75° for them. Clean water everyday. I've been feeding them Purina flock raiser and been mixing in some soft weedy greens and clover to enjoy. Is it just normal to sustain a few casualties with this breed or am I missing something? Thanks in advance.

    I know I am a little late to reply, but you want to make sure you are feeding them grit if you are giving them greens and you may want to supplement with niacin. It won't hurt them if they don't need it and it can prevent issues with deficiencies.
