Our grandson came to visit and seeing her in the tub exclaimed, “she’ll probably lay an egg”. Ha! A sick goose laying an egg in the tub …right. You guessed it – the next morning there was an egg in there … a big goose egg. Nothing like an eight year old to expect the unexpectable.
It has taken a couple of days, but now she’s starting to stand, and even squawk a bit when we aren’t in the room. We’re going to plug the tub and float her in a little bit. It’ll take the load off of her sore leg, and she can get a bath … one of a goose’s most pleasurable pastimes. Happily, it looks like she is recovering nicely and can join her fine feathered friends in a few days.
For our city friends, we call our Toulouse geese “Granny Goose Geese” – now you know what she looks like.
