Being paranoid as I am, what early signs should I look for for gapeworms? And if it's a possibility, what should I do? Is it possible to acquire them from eating grass and sand? I only ask because he's breathing a little heavily and it's a comfortable temp. in my room. My gosling is only a few weeks old, just starting to get his little white feathers. Edit: I've also noticed his feet feel hot. I gave him cool fresh water, I'll be keeping a close eye on him..
