    Ok well my parents have been raising some baby geese this year. My dad was moving the tractor the older babies have been in and one of them got a leg under the heavy framework. It pulled some skin off and massive bruising. Leg did not feel broken though and i was hoping a couple days and it would attempt walking. The leg is just hanging there. I have been giving it baths to keep it clean and to give it a chance to excercise a little bit in the water. Still no movement in the leg at all.

    So is this hopeless? I don't see how you can have a one legged goose. Any ideas or help would be great. If need be my husband will do the horrible dead for us.
