I have a pair of Pilgrims that I would love to let the goose hatch out her eggs. Last year the Mama goose did go broody but I had a dog that was stealing her eggs. This is what I want to know if it will work---- As she lays her eggs, I will collect them until I get 8-10 or so. When I have a clutch of eggs,I will put them back in the nest and make a point to contain my dog so that she doesn't disturb the nest. I just wanted to know if the goose will refuse to set if I take the eggs out until I get a clutch.Has anyone done anything similar? I add eggs to chickens nest all the time but wondered if my goose would react differently. Thanks for any suggestions.
