Spring's on it's way, the geese are laying!

Had an egg on thursday, another on saturday, then three more today. Didn't think they were going to start on time this year but they've proved me wrong.

Love goose eggs

I love 'em too. And I have no trouble selling them.

Same here!!!! Yummy! Still remember the time I was a young girl in a (farming) foster care home.... Got my first ever fried goose egg in butter! It was almost as big as me (!), yet each bite was delectable!

Will you be hatching any out hughesy
hughesy

Dave I'll take all the eggs for selling or eating until nearly the end of the laying season, usually about mid april, then I'll let them sit on whatever else they lay after that. Usually end up with a couple of geese sat on 7 or 8 eggs each. they've been quite successful at hatching in the past unlike my efforts with the incubator. I've never had any problems with duck or chicken eggs but I can't seem to get it right with goose eggs so I trust nature to get the job done.

I remember an aunt of mine who was a teacher, she had some eggs from someone at school and stuck them in an incubator in her lounge. Loads of them exploded and the stink was something fearful.

That's never happened to me but I did find a box of duck eggs that had been under the seat in the van for three months. I was tempted to crack one just to see what it was like but common sense got the better of me!
