    I was taking care of my geese when I noticed my female goose had a lump on her neck I had never seen before. It went from the bottom of her neck and then it evened out. Is something wrong? She's acting normal and eating and drinking.

    Did you get to feel it? hard, soft, lumpy? is she swallowing okay? Can you get a pic?

    I tried to feel it but it was difficult. I think it's hard. I don't know how she's swallowing. I'll try and get a picture tomorrow,

    Any possibility of a vet looking at her? I know it isn't always possible to use a vet. Or to even find one that will look at our poultry.

    Hopefully it isn't anything to worry about .

    I went to go take a picture of her today a it was gone! [​IMG] I don't know what I would do if something happened to her. My male goose, Gossie, lost his first mate and I couldn't go through that again.

    Maybe she swallowed something like a nut of some kind? Anyway so glad it's gone. Hoping you have many happy healthy years with your geese. [​IMG]
