How to care for a baby goose?

We had a baby goose left on our doorstep yesterday. I suppose since we have cows/goats it is a natural assumption that we would be willing to care for other people's animals. Grrr.... Anyways, this little thing is still in it's down and is tiny. I would guess it to be a week or two old. It walks around just fine and does it's hissing but calms down when you hold it. I have no clue how to feed this, what to feed it, or how to give it water. Any help is greatly appreciated!

howdy griz....first of all feed the goose laying pellets soaked in water to soften...can also give worms and set in the grass it will eat some wedds and grassto balance it's diet....water...ya must have a container wide and deep enough so that it can dunk it's head and clean it self er else the goose beak will become clogged and cause suffication....what ever you do....DO NOT FEED CHICK STARTER!...or anything medicated...this will cause yer new friend to die. also if ya have a heat light place it bout 6 inches from the conatiner yer using to house the lil fellow...iffin not place in the barn carport...so on away from drafts with lots of hay to keep him warm....take away food and water at night...helps keep the cage clean and the goose in better health...just make sure ya feed and water as soon as ya get up!....hope this helps....good luck...dale anne

Where do i get the goose pellets and hay from? I have inherited an older goose that was walking in traffic. Now he is in my backyard and i need to know what to provide him so that he remains healthy. Thanks!

I explained to my local feed store about my dillema and they gave meat builder (?). It is specifically for chickens but it's to build meat on your birds and is not medicated. Is this ok to give the goose?

Dont do like the mother near me who gave into her young sons demands for a baby chick from TSC. She bought it and forgot to buy feed. Fed it uncooked oatmeal. I think it ate that, drank a little water and proceeded to explode.
