    Hey guys!

    I hatched a gosling last Saturday, and this morning we were cuddling and I noticed that her skin on her feet is peeling. It doesn't look bad or irritated, but i just wanted to make sure it was normal.

    I believe that might just be a process of getting her new self together so I would not worry about it to much [​IMG]

    I'm just assuming it's normal, as it doesn't look irritated. [​IMG]

    Yes, it is normal, mine did it too. It's like shedding the old, and growing into the new. I used to just peel it off. They grow fast!! jennifer
