i have three Sebastopol Geese that are about 6-7 months old. They've been together since they were babies. They are kinda sorta friendly, but also a bit shy and skitterish. Jeanne started limping about a week ago. i picked her up to check her feet, at which point, her friends went crazy. It was like they were screaming "PUT HER DOWN! PUT HER DOWN!!!". Didn't see anything wrong with her feet, so decided to take her to my vet a few days later when the limping got worse. That was another very loud fiasco. My vet thinks it may be a sprain. She prescribed metacam for pain and then Vitamin C in case the limping is being caused by gout. She said i should isolate her and limit her walking. i took her back home, where i could hear her friends still calling for her. i put her in a hutch in our family room. But once they could hear each other, their calls got louder and more frantic. i finally gave up and put them all inside their pen, where Jeanne's walking would be limited, but they could all be together. Now i have to give Jeanne pain meds each day, and she is acting terrified of me. i don't know how to calm her down and make her less afraid. These are my first geese and i am surprised at how attached they are to each other, and also how sensitive. When i've had to pull chickens out to tend to them, their friends don't seem to care - same with our ducks. Any suggestions on how to help them be less scared of me?
