    I got some waterfowl pellets for my goslings should I mash it?

    Not sure if your gosling can eat pellets might want to make it into crumble.

    Sorta new goose mama here. I have 4 Sebbies. Just set a load of eggs. Hoping shell start setting soon and hatch the rest herself. My question is:. I have a friend that has a Sebbie male and a Pomeranian female. They breed, they lay but havent hatched any eggs. Can those two breeds cross and have offspring? Or will they be considered mules if any ever made it to hatch.tia

    Hello everyone! This is a great post. I just joined backyard chickens so i could be a part of this thread. I love my Chinese geese ever since i got them 5 months ago. I am new to raising them and i am experienceing some problems that i didn’t see in this thread. Maybe i didn’t looo hard enough. I have 3 total and my white gander is having some issues. He is off balance can’t walk well, and his wings sometimes fall to the ground. I took him to the vet and they gave him muscle relaxars for his wing....that seems like misdiagnosis. All i can find on the Internet is niacin deficiency or possible worms. I have them all niacin and will continue to do so. I don’t know how to deworm a goose fast. I deworm my goats but that’s it. I’m not finding any value info anywhere and i think I’m running out of time.
