    Goose Beak Bleeding From Injury

    So earlier today this morning I went to feed my geese and chickens. I opened the goose coop and grabbed their food dish and when I went to close the door, my gander (Oliver) came up to tell me I needed to leave (because he can be aggressive as you all know geese are). He peaked his head out and...

    Hello everyone! I have a 16 year old emden gander. Two months ago, I noticed he started having trouble with his vision but his eyes still looked clear and with no drainage. About a month ago, his right eye had become foggy and he was blind in that eye. I figured this was just a normal aging...

    URGENT!!! What are some characteristics that can differentiate a male and female White Chinese goose?

    My White Chinese geese are 9 1/2 weeks old. I really hope at least one is female. I notice that one of them stands tall, has a higher pitched voice, has a smaller vent, tends to be noisy and has a larger developed knob (the one eating grass in the picture). While the other likes to stand more...

    Gander refusing to eat

    My gander Parsnip hasn’t willingly eaten anything besides his favorite treats (blueberries, grapes) in the last two weeks. His digestion has been slow so I know he was constipated though I didn’t know if it was because of a partial blockage, inflammation, or another issue. The last few days he’s...

    Please help! Goose having problems standing.

    Hello. About two days ago, I came home and found one of our geese laying on the ground being pecked at by a half-blind female turkey. The turkey didn't do any damage (she can't really see so she was missing), but when I picked him up he flapped out of my arms and proceeded to fall forward with...

    Our Sebastopol gander has become aggressive!

    One of our hens hatched Sunshine in April from an egg I bought from an area farmer. He lived in the house for weeks until the weather was warm enough for him to be outside. We held him, talked to him, and every night, he sat on my husband’s lap while he watched TV. I have read that Sebastopols...
