    I have a Toulouse female goose that is almost a year old. She started laying eggs on 1/27/09. She has only layed 2 one every other day until yesterday. I expected one but didn't get one. Being that she's young I figured this was normal. Today still no egg, but she can't walk. She can move her legs and feet. She can stand for a few minutes. She eats and drinks. Her "passage" is warm and regualr (not over dry or over moist).

    I have always wanted a female goose, but always ended up with males, I have one male Embden goose with her(seperated them earlier today). I am so excited about her laying that I'm scared something is wrong.

    I have raised many ducks, chickens,guineas, and bobwhite quails. but not a female goose.
    Can anyone please help me?

    Thanks
    Julie

    She might be egg bound feel around her abdoman area and see if you can feel an egg . The egg may be stuck in the area some where making it painful for her to waly .

    If you feel an egg take vasoline (sp?) and rub it around the vent area that may help it out .

    Ok I didn't feel an egg, but I did put vasaline up there anyways just incase. The good news is she walked a few steps without falling after I examined her. I'm not sure if she is feeling better or just wanted to get away from the person poking and prodding her [​IMG]. I put her inside alone where she is nice and comfortable and quiet. She does go to the bathroom normal and still drinks and eats.

    I'm still worried and if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

    Thanks

    Put her in a tub full of warm water. It helps to get any egg out!



    Best wishes,
