    I need advice! I have a mama goose who is sitting on eggs that twill never hatch. I got two baby ducks for her but i dont know how to make the switch. She is very confused at this point.

    Wait until its dark and she's settled, remove all the eggs (or you can leave a few even) and sneak the ducklings underneath. I dont know if it'll work with a goose but it does work with chickens and ducks..lol..I should add being cautious as she may still reject them. Sometimes they'll even reject their own.
