    A week ago I put down some bug spray around the perimeter of my house. This morning one of my geese hopped out of her courtyard and ate sprouts from that area. Now she is weak, can't talk and wont stop washing herself. Does anyone have any advice for the time being, and also, how long until its safe to let my other geese go into that area? I think it was ortho general use bug spray.

    thank you so much for that link. Someone else referred me to one with instructions on Epsom salt flushes for geese and its already helping. She can walk now and is drinking on her own. I'm SO happy and lucky to have people on my side with things like this. Thank you!
