    HI ALL

    I HAVE 4 EMBDEN GOSLINGS WITH I HATCHED FOR THE FIRST TIME 3 WEEKS AGO!
    THEY ARE GRATE AND FOLLOW ME EVERYWHERE I GO !
    HOWEVER I HAVE NOTICED A RED PATCH ON ONE OF THEIR BACKS. THEY ARE ALL HEALTHY AND HAPPY.
    COULD THIS BE FLEAS FROM THE DOGS OR PECKING FROM THE OTHERS? IT DOSENT LOOK BLOODY OR SORE JUST BALD AND RED.

    ANY HELP WILL BE REALLY APPRECIATED AS I AM WORRIED :(

  3. Hi Chuggs,
    Are they feather picking each other and picking on the one with the red patch?
    Kind regards

    I cannot get the pictures to open. It does sound like this is pecking and once there is a different colour on a bird they will keep pecking. Make sure they have plenty of other more interesting things to peck at instead. veggies etc

    thanks to all those who replied! i think it must be pecking, although there is no blood or soreness . i will give them some veggies to peck at instead thanks!
