    Search the forum for spradled leg. You will be able to find information on how to hobble (more or less tie it's legs together) so it will be able to stand and walk. This could also be caused by a vitamin deficency. The gosling needs some liquid vitamins added to its diet.
    Hope the little thing gets better. [​IMG]

    You need to tie the legs together with a piece of floss so that they are normal distance[if not a bit closer] together. It has to be done right away and not wait. I am assuming this is a newborn here.
