  Two Super  African Brothers.... 1 yr old. I had  the  brothers and  one goose in a night pen, because the mate has a new baby (next to them. I had seen them tussle a bit ,and broke a fight up  twice.. (and then found another egg, which may explain it). but  they seemed to be reasonably ok, I thought , no blood, no ripping out feathers.(which I had another gandar do  once)....

   Yesterday I  found him , unable to stand. Otherwise I  couldn't find anything.  He can  push himself awkwardly with his legs on his belly and  uses his wings also. I  put him with his mate. He found a place to sit  where he is  comfortable, and I have food and  water next to him, which he seems to be eating and drinking. No point in taking  him to my country vet, except  to  pay for a diagnosis of  'give him time to heal' or "cull him"....

    Anyone every known of  a Gandar to break a back of another the  same size? I am hoping  he is  just brusied and battered and  maybe some torn muscles or ligaments that  could heal.... I of  course will monitor him closely, and give time to  see if  he  is  improving.... and it  is too bad, as I  like him  more than Mr. Meany....
