    got 3 baby geese last week. went to check on them tonight. the smallest one is very limp when i picked him up noticed he has a whitish diarrhea. he's having difficulty breathing and has a hard time standing on his own. gave some electrolytes and put him under a small heat lamp. any other suggestions? he's been eating well and has been grazing on grass some. i noticed yesterday he had a little diarrhea but he still had his energy. pretty bad shape now. any help appreciated.
    :(

    I would call the people you got him from and ask them if they have any idea what happened here...

    check around the area, see if he ate something he shouldn't have,
    and hopefully the other two won't get sick....
    but calling the previous owners I would definately ask them if they know anything that could of been wrong with him..
