    We got our Toulouse pair last week and the first day we let them
    Out of the barn the female got chased by coyotes!

    Our dogs took care of the coyote but it took us 18 hours to find her in the woods. She was tired and had a scrape that we treated but now I noticed both goose and gander have water consistency stool! I don’t know if they had it before we let them out or not...

    We have both ducks and geese in the same pen so I don’t know if it’s constant but I can confirm both do have it.

    We confined them in our barn for the first few days and they seemed stressed so we let them out and seem more relaxed. Eating and drinking ok walking around in and out of the rubber water tub.

    Any ideas if I should treat them
    With anything?

    I’m feeding flock grower, corn/ oats/ barley and they have hay to pick through.

    Any suggestions are appreciated

    How old are they and do you know if they have ever been wormed?

    I don’t know if they were wormed but I assume so considering the daughter of the old owner is a vet...

    I worm my chickens with ivomec horse paste would that be suitable for geese? Should I take away the eggs so she doesn’t sit them during withdrawal?

    Is your female broody or just laying?

    Probably no need to worm yet if she is broody. I wait till fall to worm since it's right before breeding season.

    Get some bird probiotics and give that too them to see if that helps with the poop.
