I agree. It is starting to get nice here, but its still down in the 30's at night. Due to the strange weather we have had here in Ohio, I'm beginning to think that I'm not going to have any hatches at all this year. So far, he is all that I have had. I just candled, and took eggs away from one goose, they were all duds and stinking, and I'm getting ready to candle the next nest because there is an awful odor coming from there too. When would be a good time to see if they will take to him? Should I try to replace him with the eggs? Does he need to be feathered before I put him out there? This is truly a mess! Since he doesn't know he's a goose, they may scare him to death. lol I have put a mirror in his tub, but there isn't anything out in my pens that look like him.
Thanks for any advice. I could sure use it now.
The only other question I have is about sunshine. I have him in a room with a heat lamp, and he looks a little pale to me. When do they start needing to have access to the sun?
