I made a post before but it went unnoticed, so I guess I’ll try again.

My 7 year old gander has a pale beak and is losing weight.
His apatite seems fine, he’s eating a lot
his food is digested, no whole bits passing through.
No blood in his droppings
Droppings are brown and a little watery.
I have 7 geese and 4 ducks total, only Parsnip is expieriencing this.

He’s on a diet of mixed grains, corn, wheat, barley, millet, milo.
He gets access to pasture grass most of the day but isn’t much interested in grazing compared to his grain.

Parsnip has had no prior health issues but lost his brother a year ago, I tried pairing him with two females but he was uninterested in them and instead wanted to be with his dad Leo. Leo was hostile until about two months ago and then they decided to be friends.
So basically Parsnip has been stressed most of the year until now, he’s now happy and relaxed living with Leo, but he has these health issues.

Does anyone know what might be going on with him?

Parsnip in the forefront.
