    I saw this goose acting strangely the other day at work. She was very still and had her head on the ground as seen in the picture. She would move infrequently but always go back to this pose. Anyone ever see anything like this?

    Welcome to BYC. That is called wry neck or torticolis. It can be from a vitamin deficiency, a head injury, or sometimes a sign of diseases that affect the brain. It can cause problems earing or foing about normal activity. Vitamin E and selenium are normall given to help treat it in domestic birds and chickens.
