    hi
    i have chickens, geese and ducks, one of my female, year old geese started bleeding yesterday,it looks like from her vent, i thought she may be egg bound, i have lubricated the vent but can feel no eggs inside or through her belly, i live in italy and taking the goose to a vet would be a bit strange, i don't even know if the vet would know what to do, vets are for pets and poultry are considered food here, any help would be appreciated.
    ciao

    have you tried a soak in a epsom salt bath
    if she is egg bound this may allow her to pass it and clean the area

    hmmmm...what about a soak in plain warm water?
    is it a lot of blood coming out? drops? or just little amounts?
