    geese cross breeds Embden x Landes possibility

    i would say it might be only several days less than a week. i've seen info about that even emden can lay two times in season, so if we stop her stage now she could lay again however we haven't seen any egg from her. and if we fill up the other nests with eggs could the landes become broody? it...

    i suppose the emden female became broody sitting on 4 plastic eggs without hatching any of her own. so if we take all the eggs from all nests she should start to lay again?

    so today've we have split the barn again, bulding up higher wall to cover the two new nests away, with the separate entrance, the entrance is smaller designed for ducks but the grey landes geese were ablet o enter but what's worse even the embdens are able, i've put there some grass as...

    so last days the situation is changed, the white embden female took control of the barn and is sitting in one nest with 7 platic eggs, no eggs from her as per as i know. there are two more nests with the plastic eggs too, in one there are two real goose eggs and we are finding duck eggs too. but...

    separation of ducks from group

    we got some eggs, and they've mated already. what ever, we will need to collect several eggs before filling them to our incubator, last year our pekin females were broody but they did not hatched the ducklings, last time one of them was sitting on like 12 eggs but the eggs dissappeared and only...

    separation of ducks from group

    yes i heard that it's like for 2 weeks but 3 weeks to be sure, we have seperated them now one the end of Feb, and there are no eggs, sometimes one per week, but i suppose in March there wont be many eggs so only from April and these eggs should be fertilized from the drakes in each group. Just...

    separation of ducks from group

    the opposite of the pure breeds, all breeds are regular duck - no muscowy. i'm trying to mix breeds to get different combinations, that's why i need to have the drakes (the same breed) from the group B to mate with the females. 2 drakes are the same breed (i bought two for safety if one should...

    separation of ducks from group

    our ducks know each other they grew up together, some where added later but still they get used to it, i've seen them even today, the main group is walkin around their area and the other group is just trying to find the way to them not inspecting their area, they just stick to the same place...

    separation of ducks from group

    I was thinking about puting non transparent barier on the fence so they wont be able to see each other. but they will hear and feel the presence anyway. before we were thinking about to putting them elsewhere a bit more far away from each other.

    i hope so, as we need to get eggs from the females to be fertilized by the desired drakes only. i'v checked them today its just fourth day and they are still holding themselves near the fence together. any idea how much time they need?

    np. to reply, i'm glad for your words. just shortly some summary, we had 3 landes females without gander and we wanted embden gander to them but he was offered to us with the female too, so that's how they are now 1+4. they were doing nicely since sept 2019 till the time we had to close them in...

    we have only one gander now as we want to mix the breeds, that was mentioned in this post on the start. the breeder offered us his couple as he messed up the eggs in incubator last year and he got several animals and he is elderly, so he offered us the gander he is two years old but he asked if...

    we are sure that both embdens are male and female, we got them from a breeder she used to be broody too, and their behavior is totally different. and yes i've heared about mating for life and as he still has his favourite female as they were bought as pair, he maybe just hardly accepts addtional...

    seems the avian influenza is over and we released our geese and ducks back to open area. we have 24 eggs from geese already and i suppose all are from the gray females only, no eggs from the embden female so far, she was alone with the gander for like last two weeks and no egg so far. now they...

    separation of ducks from group

    I bought them on 31st May 2018 as several days old, so in February 2019 they were less than one year old when we found the nest with first eggs. In our area geese usually start laying in february and should be broody in March so starting April babies should be here.
