    We live near a pond where some canadian geese have made a nest. The pond is over-run with turtles and as soon as the goslings hatch the turtles will get them (it has happened before). The land owner suggested that we take the eggs and see if our chickens will raise them, then return them to pond when they are old enough to survive. She said she had luck having chickens raise ducks, so I want to know if anyone thinks the same will work with geese?
