    Goose With Wry Neck!! HELP!

    Hey all. Yesterday I went out to feed my goose and noticed that she was stumbling around as if drunk. Once I caught her, I noticed two small puncture wounds on her chest.

    Goose beak issue

    I am so confused on what’s wrong with my gander’s beak. I’m thinking maybe a possible nutrient deficiency or injury? He currently eats a mix of oats, cracked corn, and flock raiser feed, and then grass whenever he’s out grazing. His beak is crusty and brown in certain spots, almost like he has a...

Now the chickens are missing more feathers on their back towards the tail and under their vents. It seems like they are picking at each other under...

    Hateful geese

    Ok spring is in full swing of things here. My trio of Toulouse geese have always been a little grumpy towards other members and animals on our flock. Nothing I didn’t expect.
