    This morning I wanted to check the fertility of my girls first egg plus use the egg for french toast. I cracked it on the side of a pyrex glass pan and uhhh...The egg barely showed a crack. The pan however has a chip...[​IMG]so if you plan on using your goose eggs for cooking don't crack the egg on the side of glass pans. Yeah...I guess she has been hitting the oyster shell harder then I thought.

    On the plus side the egg was fertile and the french toast was great.[​IMG]

    Breaking through a goose egg is very hard to do! Now I can see why the goslings take so long getting out!! So far there have been 8 eggs laid here and all froze overnight and had to toss them into the woods.

    Miss Lydia it is still just too cold for them to be laying eggs and wasting the energy on frozen eggs that will never hatch! I am not ready either to be hatching eggs yet.
