I just rescued two dumped geese with leg issues from a park. I noticed the female has a severely deformed beak.. is there anything I should look out for while caring for a goose like this? She seems to be able to drink and eat fine but I'm concerned about it over growing or causing nose issues.

It's amazing how animals can adapt to disabilities.❤️ While all geese need clean water deep enough to blow out their nares, it'll be especially important for your new girl; it also looks like her nostrils may be deformed, so I'd keep an eye out for respiratory issues.

You mentioned leg issues - is that already in hand or would you like second opinions? 🙂

Best wishes...may they live long and happy lives with your care!

Her bill is really stumpy so I'm pretty sure that's deformed too. The male (Sprite) has a bad bumble infection angel wing and twisted keel and Pepsi the deformed one has a swollen foot. They will be quarantined for 30 days so I'll have a lot of time to check on future conditions and issues with her. They are also very sweet! Pepsi loves attention. I usually rescue ducks but I've started rescuing geese in these past couple months any advice is welcome.

There would sometimes be geese or ducks with broken or deformed beaks in the park where I used to take care of them. I would feed them with containers or buckets and they did fine. I also had a pigeon once with scissor beaks. She ate fine out of a container, but would only eat sunflower seed.
