    Hello all,


    I am new to this site but really hope you all can help. I have aflac type ducks sorry I don't know thier breed and geese living together. I don't know which ones are laying eggs but they are driving me crazy cause they are burying thier eggs. I want them to hatch the eggs, we did put some under a chicken but they have't hatched yet.


    have you ever heard of ducks or geese burying thier eggs?

    My geese always hide their eggs by burying them, but they are always in the same spot.....................

    most likely duck eggs if you were able to put a few under a hen, geese eggs are huge, aflac ducks are called white pekins and they are not good setters so if u really want babies u should incubate yourself, but iv'e had pekins hatch eggs so maybe give it a try, good luck

    My ducks bury their eggs in the straw. It's always a hunt to find them. [​IMG] But it's like hunting for buried treasure. [​IMG]
