    This is Amelia, my sebastopol gosling. She is almost 4 months old, is 1/3 the size of her clutch mates and doesn't have any feathers yet, not to mention her neck is all crooked. Anyone seen this before? A[​IMG]ll the wry neck pics I have seen go down, not sideways like this...

    Probably. But i can't find any posts on wry neck in geese. Wry neck is usually a result of injury to the head, from a vitamin deficiency, or from a disease such as Mareks diease. I would get her on some vitamins, especially all B's E, and if you can find E that has selenium in it, that would be good. You can buy selenium by itself, but you have to be careful not to overdose them. Here is a good source for info (be sure to note the add in the vitamin part for Vit. E with selenium):
