    So down on our dock I found a rather large egg. It was just laying on the dock itself.
    At first I thought one of my duck hens had waddled out there and laid a double yoker, but the more I look at it, I suspect this may be a wild Canada goose egg.
    I've googled and can't seem to find a straight answer as to if it's okay to consume a wild found egg.
    I'm probably being silly and it's perfectly fine.
    Thoughts?

    Don't see why not.Couldn't be any different than if one of our domestic geese laid one and we ate it which I do. They all come from the same place. [​IMG]
