    I got 2 babies in May and they are what I believe to be Embdem mixes. Almost 3 months old now. They have been fine and today I noticed one of them is wobbly on its feet. He is eating and drinking and just ate some watermelon and ate food earlier.

    Does anyone have any idea of what could be wrong? they have been healthy and fine up until now. The 2 momma geese raised them after a week of keeping them in a dog kennel in the goose coop.

    Is the watermelon over-ripe? I have heard they can actually get drunk from hard melon.

    What about heat? alot of people are noticing problems with their birds because of the heat. if you think that could be the problem make sure it has plenty of cool water to drink and to bath in. Even freeze some milk jugs and put them out maybe he'll lay next to it to cool off. Maybe even put it into the pool or what ever you have out for them to swim in and see if it helps at all. Or could it have eaten something it shouldn't have?
