Runt gosling
Date: 8 June 2016

We have a Canadian geese family with 3 normal growing goslings and one runt who appears to be staying very small. He is still yellow and his siblings are now getting their tail pin feathers and adult coloring. What will happen to the runt? He eats well, stays up with the family as they make their daily rounds, but it's so tiny compared to the others. Will he develop?
