getting my goose to leave her unfertile eggs and accept two baby ducks

Thread Starter 

Hello ~

I need advice!  I have a mama goose who is sitting on eggs that twill never hatch.  I got two baby ducks for her but i dont know how to make the switch.  She is very confused at this point.

Any ideas?

Wait until its dark and she's settled, remove all the eggs (or you can leave a few even) and sneak the ducklings underneath. I dont know if it'll work with a goose but it does work with chickens and ducks..lol..I should add being cautious as she may still reject them. Sometimes they'll even reject their own.
