    He's our newest rescuee and has had a bit of bad luck with his poor bill. It curves to the side and looks like it's dripping off. His tongue is exposed and he eats by putting his head on the ground and shoveling the food in his mouth.

    He was so pitiful, I knew no one would want him for anything but duck meat oh la la, so I took him in and let him live in our pond. I have no clue what type he is or how old. I just know that he's a sweetie and needs some lovin'. heheh

    Gosh, poor thing. He's a good looking bird with a "wry grin". I hope he manages okay. I hope his tongue won't freeze in the winter...

    I am sure others would do a much better job guessing his breed, but he sure does look happy with all his buddies now!!

    I had a goose named Snuffy, she had the same beak problem.
    Here is a picture of her..she is the Embden (white one).
