I usually steal the goose eggs and put them in the incubator. It's easier for me to rear them, than to leave them with the goose as we have eels in the dam and the crows also get them. This time I knew she was sitting, but I left it too long. I found seven goslings today. I put the remaining eggs in the incubator as the mother had abandoned them. Dad is pretty protective as well. Both parents are smooth breast sebastopols so the goslings will be similar I think. I have some curly breasted pairs as well and one of those geese is sitting as well.
