    Today I went out to the chicken coop and went to clean my goose pool and I found a egg in the pool. It is white and pointy at the top. It has to be either my geese or my turkey. Because I don't have any white egg laying chickens. This is the first egg I have gotten from the pool and the only white egg I have ever got. What could have later it's egg in the pool?

    I've had my pekin hens lay eggs in their kiddy pool before. Doesn't happy often so I don't get to worried about it.

    But the egg wasn't big like a goose egg should be. It was the size of a large chicken egg

    How old is your goose? most are finished laying for the year but I have seen where a few folks are still finding eggs. Has she ever laid before? Sometimes they will lay a smaller egg than normal especially when they first start to lay. Seems odd your turkey would stand on the side of the pool and lay an egg. I don't know maybe it's just me.

    Your goose will not lay an egg at a few months old she won't lay till next spring. must have been some random bird that passed through.

    Is it possible that a wild duck could have later it's egg in the pool? Now that I think about it it does look like a duck eggs.

    It's a mystery, do you have a game camera? maybe set it up at the pool and see if anything stops by.
