    Does anyone know the approximate diameter and height of a regular goose egg?

    I know they are aprox. 2x bigger than a chicken egg. and bigger than a duck egg too.
    hope that helps if your trying to identify the egg between chicken/duck eggs.

    Quote:Thank you very much for you answer, I am making wood egg racks for my incubator, and need to know the diameter of the holes for goose eggs but I can't find their size in the internet so I guess I need to wait as I don't have any egg right now.

    It depends on the breed. I've not weighed my goose's eggs but they are easily 3X's bigger than the jumbo eggs my leghorn hen lays.
