    when my goose hatched out her bill was all smushed up, it was all rite when she was little because her bill met, but now that she is older hardly any bill meets. I dont want to kill her but i dont want her to starve. What can i do? I've tried to give her ground corn mixed with corn, oats, and alfalfa, but it doesnt seem to be working [​IMG]

    I am sure she will live a fine life. Here is what you need to do. Make sure your food dishes are deep at least 4-5 inches or more. That way she can shove her goofy bill deep into the food. I would stick with a small pellet and no ground food or crumble. Make sure you also give her a water dish that is FOR SURE 6-8 inches so she can totally submerge her head and keep all of the food etc. cleaned out of her mouth eyes etc.

    She might do better with her food moistened. I agree on a deeper dish or bowl-good luck!
