Longtime chicken keeper, short-time goose keeper. One of our three 1-year old Pilgrims seems to have injured herself pretty seriously -- she has a long puncture wound from mid-belly, down between her legs. (Between the fat rolls, basically.) The skin flaps are dangling and I can see the abdominal membrane, but I don't think it's been punctured. Two days ago we noticed she was listless and limping. No obvious swelling or injuries at that time, and no signs of bumblefoot. One leg was warmer than the other, so we started daily Penicillin Procaine injections. She seemed to be improving, but this morning the dangling skin flap appeared -- after I picked her up, I saw the wound. She's currently separated in our recovery pen with water & her favorite snacks, and when my husband gets home from work tonight we'll take a closer look just to make sure that all her insides are still inside where they should be. I've helped chickens recover from similar wounds (hawk attacks) on their legs and back, but never a belly wound like this. This is also my first time handling a serious goose injury. (These three free range on our farm and have "personality plus," so I doubt it will be the last!) Assuming it's just the skin that's been torn -- is this an injury she could recover from? When our chickens were injured, our vet advised us not to give stitches because with care and time, the skin would regenerate. (It did.) Do geese heal in the same way? Is there any special or different that we need to be doing with a goose vs a chicken? Typically we would clean the wound very well with sterile saline solution, then a betadine wash and daily Neosporin packing/bandaging until the wound skins over. Penicillin injections until we stop bandaging. What do you all think? We're softies, and want to avoid the chopping block if at all possible. With only three geese, she's more of a pet than Christmas dinner.
