Today I was gifted a pair of 10-year-old Sebastopols. The gander had become the bottom of the pecking order and was being thrashed constantly by the younger and larger ganders. The lady who gave him to me graciously gave me his mate as well to keep him company. They will be the only geese at our house and I am hopeful that now the gander will be able to enjoy life again in our orchard/pasture. I am wondering what I can do to help him recover from the damage inflicted by the other ganders. One of his poor wings is almost absent of feathers, and the skin is yellow and kind of "hard" looking. The tip of the same wing is also bald, kind of dark and scabby, and twisted outward. After I brought them home today he stretched his wings to flap, but only the uninjured wing extended, which makes me wonder if the damaged wing is broken and fused. There are no significant open wounds so I don't think there's any point in applying antibiotic cream. Other than the one wing looking bald and awkward, both geese seem to be in excellent health -- bright-eyed, active, and eating fine. He does not appear to be in any pain. SO - is there anything I can do to encourage new feather growth? Apparently the other ganders repeatedly attacked him on the same spot so I am wondering if this is scar tissue and if he will ever grow feathers there. He's only here to be a pasture ornament and possibly to father a gosling or two, but I do want him to be comfortable and it would be nice for him to be fully feathered if I can do something to help.
