    My only problem is they are in with my muscovys and once in a while I find an bigger egg in the mess b ut I don't know if its from my ducks or the geese. I have an bonded pair. So I might be selling some of my geese eggs with the muscovys. do they have any spots or werid shape to them?

    I will try to get a photo when I candle eggs next time.

    It depends on the hen tough. Some will lay eggs that are almost similar to muscovy. Most are slightly bigger and a little more pointed. But they are the same color as the muscovy eggs.

    I herd that they will destroy any other eggs in other nests... so you just might have all Geeses eggs, LOL
