    Now I don't have any geese but I know the animals body and the humans body kind of react in the same way. I think you should check to see if she has any signs of a fight. She also might have done something to herself thus causing the bloody mouth, and the weezing.

    Never owned geese, but some things remain the same (sorta like chicken boy suggests ~'-)

    Get something to rinse out it's mouth with -- any bottle you can squirt water from should work (saline contact solution, products for nasal irrigation, or even a squirt gun). What you're needin' to know is this: From where did this blood come from?

    She may have a cut in her mouth, or ... worse, by far ... possibly swallow something sharp that's cut her up inside, and possibly even lodged in her throat. If so, you may be able to find it by feel.

    This could also be the result of some chemical injury, if there's somethin' she coulda gotten into ...

    :: edit ::
    There are diseases and events that can explain blood coming from her mouth, but hopefully someone w/ more experience w/ geese will be able to help you figure this out.

    I suggested that the thread starter contact CelticOaksFarm... apparently they did so and I am hopeful that the thread starter received a response to their goose problem - fingers crossed [​IMG]
