    It happend just a few minutes ago one of my goslings shes about a week old got her leg and foot stuck under the wire and I heard her distress call so I gently got it unstuck but now she's limping but when she is on it she walks okay. It's not splayed thank goodness phew ( sigh of relief) I know shes in pain . Anyway I moved her and her sister into another brooder inside where its flat, and no chance of her getting stuck again with nice wood shavings.
    She's eating and drinking I hope she will be okay???? I cant afford to lose her or her sister I thought that would be okay in the cage dummy me. I just feel awful..

    Dont worry as Im sure we've all been there in one way or another. Your gosling sounds ok, as she is weight bearing on the foot and eating ok. It will be probably just be a little tender but do keep an eye on her [​IMG]
