That's interesting to know. Do you think I should consider not breeding the same pair again, since there was a case of angel wing among their goslings? Or is it a thing that occurs and cannot be completely prevented, even by careful selection of geese to be bred?

Very hard to say, I hope a goose expert will have an opinion?
