    Quote:I would say it means there is something wrong with your goose. I can't think of anything specific and therefore can't tell you anything to do about it. I know this isn't very helpfull but thought this answer was better than nothing.

    Depends. I have a goose with a bit of a nodule on his foot. He has a slight limp when walking on level ground. I'd check over the feet really well to see if there is any evidence of injury.

    Here's a nice list of diseases affecting geese. I didn't see any where wobbliness was the only symptom, but there are a few that involve the nervous system and might give you a clue of what else to look for.
