Hi all I went to a friends house today and bought a young pair ( I think) of Buff Goslings and an extra that I think is a gander was given to me because he has a horrible cross beak that looks like he smashed his head against a wall, and he even has crossed wings that instead of laying flat against his body, his flight feathers stick straigt out to the sides like hes an air plane. So I am wondering if there is anyway to make him look more like a goose instead of a crashed air plane. I'm pretty sure there is nothing to do about the beak, but I was wondering if it would be possible to cut the end flight feathers off, bone and all at the end joint with causing too much harm. Is that what pinioning ( or however you spell it ) is or is that just cutting the muscle and membrane and leaving the bone intact ? He is the same size and all as the other two so I guess the crossbeak isnt any handicap to him, but I just dont like the looks of his feathers sticking out like that.
