Hi! I have four American buff goslings that I am brooding with six ducklings. They are two weeks old and they are my first geese. They seem pretty healthy and are growing. The problem is that the ducklings look all nice and fluffy but the goslings look awful. I think that they stick their heads all in the mash and put it all over themselves or something. Also if they get water on them, the ducklings dry in about a minute and the little geese take forever! I had to give them a couple of warm baths because if being covered with food and it took me a long time to dry them. Their bedding changed at least twice a day. Someone recommended taking away the food and water at night so they had a chance to dry off, which makes sense except I thought you were never supposed to leave waterfowl without water. Plus, if I wanted them to be dry AND clean all night I would have to bathe and dry them before bed! It seems a bit ridiculous, but I guess I may have to do just that. I am worried about their skin having problems or something! Has anyone had a problem like his with their brooder goslings? Can they go all night without food and or water?
