    I have an African Grey goose sitting on a clutch of duck eggs when they hatch if they do will she know they aren't her babies?

    I have a Pekin Duck that laid about 8 eggs she was sitting on them then some how her and the Goose swapped up.
    Now the Goose has taken over the sitting job. Will this be a problem?

    Nope it shouldn't be a problem. She should still view them all as her babies and will raise them as if they were her own
