Hi! I have a brown chinese crested goose pair, who have previously hatched goslings with their own eggs. Starting at the beginning of April, my goose, Buttercup, started laying eggs. She laid 14-16 eggs, but I haven't caught her sitting on the nest in the last two weeks. I saw her sit on it for a few days, but after that, I haven't seen her near her nest. Her nest is still is good shape, the eggs seem to be turned every day, and she's still protecting it (I'm going to have a nasty goose bite bruise on my shoulder tomorrow) but I wanted to see if the eggs would actually hatch, so I candled the eggs. It's not something I regularly do, because I'm not the best at is, so I have no idea if there are goslings developing in my eggs, or not. I took some pictures and would love to see what you think. I don't think these ones have goslings, but I thought I would check! These were the ones I wasn't to sure about, especially the last one. Sorry for the quality of the pictures. If some of them are fertile, which ones, and if none of them are fertile, how should I dispose of the eggs without devastating Buttercup? Thank you!
