    My little goose (8 month old African) got her bill stuck between 2 pieces of fencing that were overlapped. I just found her, I was back there this morning and she was not caught, so it had to have happened within the last 8 hours.

    She is eating fine, but there is a small open wound on her bill, like a scrape from falling on the pavement for humans. Its about 1/4 of an inch long. Is there anything I should do to it, i already wiped it with a first aid wipe, but should I put any medication on it? I don't want it to get infected.

    Thanks for any advice!

    She'll be fine. I don't know how many times mine have scraped up their bills--usually by sticking them where they don't belong--and they've always healed just fine. Never had any infection or done anything to them. She should be just fine.
