    I have an African Goose that has been laying for about 3 weeks now, the other day a coyote, or something attacked them her
    all I could see was a small cut on her wing, she seemed ok, today she has water stool with mucus not eating, like she usually does,
    any advice what to do or how to treat her.

    She may have internal injuries. I would look more closely for any other injuries, such as cuts, bruises, ot swollen puffy areas around her chest that may be air collecting under the skin (leaking air sac.) Try to get her to drink water with some Poultry NutriDrench or SaveAChick electrolytes added. Also, I would post here on the goose thread for more help:
