    hi folks, my Poser is the only goose in my flock of ducks, less than a year old, haven't been sure on gender, but the Drake Pekin insists a girl- so anyway, yesterday cleaning the duck house, i find this large egg- is it Posers? Is it too soon for a goose to lay eggs? She is 7 months old

    Looks like goose egg to me.

    It is not to early for her to lay my chinese started laying at 4 and 5 months of age.

    ok thanks! She really is sweet, the waterfowl flock consists of a pekin drake, 2 welsh harlequins and a kahaki all girls- so i am happy this one turned out to be a girl- goose personality is really different than the ducks- she come to the door to invite us out...[​IMG]

    I vote duck egg, especialy if they've just started laying. My pekins especially lay HUGE eggs when they first start, once a 4-yolker that was enormous! Poor duck.

    As far as a goose/duck hybrid: probably not going to happen. There seem to be no recorded incidences of this.......ever.
