    This gosling is less than 24hrs old and it has a problem as you can see in the pics.

    Is this a part absorbed yolk or some internal organs that shouldn't be there?

    Is there anything i can do to help it survive?

    Currently it is alive and kicking.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Aww poor baby, only thing I can think of is not to let what ever that is dry out, maybe over a few days it will absorb. warm paper towels kept over the area betadine mixed with warm water poured over the area a couple times a day. Hopefully someone who has experienced this will be here to help. Also Veterycin spray is great to have on hand to help with healing and prevent infections. Please keep us updated..
