    My gosling is able to hold his head up but the neck is laying back. What can I do to help him, or will this fix on its own. Please respond.

    Never had "wry neck" in any geese i raised but have had it in pheasants. I may be wrong but that what the description and pics indicate. Do a search on here for wry neck, you'll find plenty of remedies. Best luck

    Thanks looks like vitamin e and Poly Vi Sol is the answer gave him both tonight. He is actually looking better.

    Neck looks good now. I’m continuing to give him Poly Vi Sol and Vitamin E.

    Glad to hear that....wry neck is a terrible condition, especailly if not caught soon. Good Luck with your gosling!
