My Chinese brown geese has wet feathers. This is my first time dealing with this. An idea on how to help with it. Should I keep him in my house day and night, or just at night. It is pretty cold here but I have a coop that he stays in overnight that has lots of straw inside. Will he be warm enough there. His feathers are damp.

How cold is it? Wet feather can be caused by a few things, diet, illness where the bird isn’t preening and spreading the oils on his feathers. I’d either bring him inside and blow dry him if your below freezing or bring him in and keep him inside till you can figure out why he’s got wet feather. What is his diet? Usually molt takes care of wet feather but that won’t happen until late spring or early summer here.
