    Gosling with wry neck

    I went to get my lone gosling a friend from a local breeder and one of the babies had wry neck and she said she was going to cull him. I asked if I can give him a chance instead. I’ve been giving vitamin E, neck massage, daily exercise, tried handmade splints but nothing seems to be working...

    I have two Gosling that are roughly four weeks old I believe. One of them has spots that seem to be different than the other and I'm not sure if it is normal or cause for concern.

    Does this gosling have angel wing?

    This African gosling is approximately 5 weeks old. Most of its diet through the past 4 weeks consists of Mazuri Waterfowl Starter and romaine lettuce but also had a little Purina Flock Raiser Crumbles (non-medicated) and cabbage. It seemed to eat a little of grass in my parent's backyard last...
