CARING FOR GOSLINGS


Goslings

Goslings need heat from day old to one to two weeks depending on the weather. A 250-watt infra-red pig lamp will brood 30 to 40 goslings. It should be suspended about 15 inches above the litter, and then gradually raised as the goslings are weaned off heat. A surround of hardboard will keep out draughts, and white wood shavings or straw is ideal for bedding. Goslings are then best kept on grass but they should not be allowed to become too wet.
