Young goose feathers ripped out, and some bleeding from attack from Gandar overnight

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

    Well, I thought they were ok together. I had to separate some younger birds from a setting group of 4 (same age/family). Then the  other female decided to set in the  next younger group.... there were 4 1 yr geese that were with them , and noticed they started to run at the youngers the  other day a couple times, but nothing 'serious' ....so I  thought. I thought only the  older gandar was aggressive during setting. Nope, seems I have 2 .

    This  morning I had a young gandar with  blood his leg and side , and under wing. Seems his  feathers were ripped out. Not  bleeding, I hosed him well and put the  4 youngsters  in a clean pen.

      I will check my  Geese book, but wonder if anyone knows of  anything I  should put on it or leave it alone (it is under his wing, so  flies probably won't get there.(only seen a few around).  (wasn't any other predator, as all is hotwired top and  bottom of the  fence.)

 

     I have Wonder Dust and  Neoporin , but read not  to use the kind with  pain killer.

hhhmmm, not sure how to delete post. He isn't too bad. I put neosporin on it. Must have bleed mostly from the primaries that were ripped out. A bit more underneath , but not as bad as it  looked with blood all down side.
