    Ok I have a difficult problem. I have a brown Chinese Goose before I got her she had been attacked by a coyote. Her neck is a bit twisted and her one leg turns in a bit. We call her Frida because she's a fighter. The issue is I'm finding it hard to tell if her behaviour is because of these issues or something else.

    Today I'm finding that she is not moving well she will follow the other geese to where there foraging but then sits down to eat. I've brought them inside the greenhouse and now she has settled down beside a water bowl with some grain in it. She hasn't started to lay yet this season but her back end is bigger than usual.
    Any thoughts would be helpful. [​IMG]

    She's a beauty, sorry she's not quite up to par. I haven't raised geese (but some day I will!) so emergency forum would probably be your best bet. You could also post on the goose forum:

    I hope she's ok. Thanks for joining us, good luck!
