    Not sure if it can come back. Has your goose/gander gone through molt since you treated the angel wing?

    my goose laid her first egg today[​IMG]right on the ground in the middle of the pen. my goose and my gander are not even year old yet but since the goose is laying eggs shouldn't the gander try and mate with her he doesnt even act intrested but he will soon right?



    and he's very protective over her.

    Unfortunately you cant get rid of angelwing unless you fix it on the young bird when it first shows on its first set of feathers.Might not have got it completely If he was treated as a youngster. Congrats on the egg! The gander may already mating with her and you just might not have seen it happen, It happens pretty fast [​IMG]. Hard to say with year old birds
