I know I do a lot of these but I have lots of animals. I have a goose that has some sort of problem, it is losing its feathers, only the shafts are left. I do not believe this is a molt, and I will post pictures later. It is not lice because I've already treated her like all my other geese. She is scratching a lot and the feathers are falling out. The way I'm describing it makes it seem like a molt or lice but it's not. I will be posting pictures in a minute but please help. I've never seen this and I've treated so many geese. All of the other geese avoid her. I've treated her with lice/flea/tick spray, and it did not work, so she doesn't have lice. I'm really not sure what this is but it's definitely serious. If I don't find an answer soon I may have to put her down so the issue doesn't spread. I'm researching a lot. She has plenty of access to deep water as well. Please help
