    Gee, it looks like a nub. I'm hoping someone can help you. Figured I'd give you a bump.

    Looks like a joint issue, like double jointed? I had a goose that had something similar but it was her hip. She got around ok, but died near her first birthday. [​IMG] I was distraught (I was a city kid and hatched her out in science class when we found a nest where the mother had been killed by a dog.). Anyways, I was so upset and wasnt sure what lead to her early death so I sent her to Mich State U where they have an awesome vet school for autopsy. They said she had osteoperosis and that caused her early, but natural and unavoidable death. I hope your lil one does better!

    You don't think that it has some kind of deathly disease or even broke?!?! I had thought about putting a splint on it, if it was broke. He/she doesn't chirp or anything when I move it or touch it. And it really don't look swollen.

    The man I bought them from said for me to give them vitamins when I bought them, but the local co-op has been out every time that I stopped by. Do you think that would help?
