    I have seven adult geese and a three month old gosling and am preparing to worm them all with Flubenvet but I can't seem to find the 'safe' age for worming my gosling. Does anyone have any idea when I would be able to do this please? Thanks

    If you have the money/time/access, take them to a vet. The vet will always be your best resource. My vet wormed all my geese, some as young as one week old.

    Thanks but its not really practical for me to do that. I have wormed all the adults before and they are super easy but there are no manufacturer instructions on how young is too young unfortunately.

    Contact the makers of the wormer or ask a vet, I don't see the need to worm young goslings unless kept in unsanitary conditions.
