    Greetings. My family and I recently took in a stranded gosling. I have done a bit of internet research in how to care for the poor thing. We keep it in a pin of cut grass and have some chick feed and water for it. It is several weeks old at this point.

    Lately it has taken to falling on it's back and laying there- stuck. Is this normal? What's going on? What should I do differently? Anything would be helpful.

    Hello Annarfay,

    So sorry to hear of your gosling's problems. Unfortunately this may be why it was stranded by its parents.

    Many that post on here are from the UK and are in their nighttime hours at the moment, but several have experience with geese and goslings and surely will comment in the morning when they see your post.

    Sorry I can't offer any advice.
