In the Brooder
- May 23, 2011
Okay I dont know what happened to her she is 4 months old around 10-12 pounds. A couple of days ago she started limping a little and I checked her out. She had a couple of scrapes on the bottom of her foot. They were not even through the lower level of the skin just like her scales were off. I cleaned it up put some antibiotic salve on it just the cheap stuff. She is a free range during the day and put up at night. It has gotten worse. She has a broke toe nail on her small toe doesnt appear to have bled at any time. Her pad between her toes is swollen warm to the touch and soft just like normal swelling. Her mid joint seems swollen and warm as well. I honestly do not know what to do today she is very lazy not really lethargic just not moving around alot. I put her up in the building gave her food and water but she is laying around a lot. I dont know if I should give her some tylenol for the swelling put her on antibiotics or what? I dont think it is broke in the main leg bone at least her small toe might be broke the little one at the back of her foot. She is kinda my baby very sweet and loving. I have never had geese before.
