Gosling with cough


Dec 28, 2019
Hello all!
I have a weird situation here. We had a terrible hailstorm thr other day and my neighbors went outside after the storm and discovered a gosling. It just ran up to them-so naturally they brought it to me thinking it was mine. I think they had it for 2 days.
Here is the issue. It has a slight cough, like one little cough every so often. It's poop was seeming fine. Now it's uber watery but the cough doesn't seem any worse.. I have the gosling quarantined in a room with no other birds. We do put a diaper on it and let it walk around with us for a bit because I feel bad it's alone (we sanitize after)..

Any ideas anyone?

I'm worried about like bird flu. Does it need some medicine? This is a little different than I'm used to. I am only used to chicken issues thus far. We have far less waterfowl-let alone goslings. That were found outside..
How long to quarantine? How long do they take to get over this type of illness?
