    Who is laying this?

    That's what I was thinking to about the color and as for the waxy feel my goose eggs feel kinda waxy to be honest so that wont help in determining what it is. I guess I will be putting them in the incubator either way and we will see what happens. Thx for the advice from everyone.

    Ring Neck pheasants suddenly dying

    There 16 weeks old and in a 8 foot high coop while inside but could be possible I see no other reason for them just to be dying off randomly like that. I have really had no luck with these birds so far I bought a dozen and so far I have lost half of them due to random death from fighting etc.

    My new canada geese arent eating.

    Ya there much more confortable here now. And well to own a Canada goose you have to either pinion it or cut its flight feathers to take there flight away. Its not like you can train them to stay home it just wont happen no matter how long you have them. One might argue confinining any wild bird...
