Sebastopol goose has a bloody nose

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

This is my first winter with my goose, a beautiful 9 month old female Sebastopol. 2 days ago I found her huddled in the chicken nest with bright red blood in her nostrils and on her beak. I'm super worried!

I brought her inside and she spent the night on a hay bed in my bathroom tub with warm water and food. She seems to be doing fine, the bleeding has stopped and I put some neosporin on her beak to heal up.

I'm in northeastern PA - its been cold here, mostly 20's, but going lower in the next few days (and we still have a few months of winter). I keep my birds (20 chickens, 1 turkey, 2 ducks, 1 goose) in a coop that is up off the ground with a fenced in outdoor area. I have a heated water bucket in the pen, and a brooder lamp and pine bedding in the coop. I don't close the little door - perhaps the drafts are an issue? (never have been before, but....)

Everyone else seems to be fine except for my sweet goosey. Help!? Is the bloody nose just from the cold? Any advice on Sebastopols in the winter would be much appreciated.

Is there a wound? Maybe she just bashed the top of her nose somehow (you know, on  top of the nostrils?). I hope she gets better!

I grow tired of asking this, so it will be for the last time. WHERE IS THE REBEL CHICKEN COOP?

I would say she either scraped it on something or was attacked by another bird. If you have roosters in with her or male ducks or even hens and she was being a little aggressive or nosey she could have been pecked as long as she perks back up she should be fine if she is lethargic still I would sespect its something internal but then I don't know what it would be.

Good Luck,
Henry
