    I have a pomeranian goose that has been sitting almost two months. She kicked one egg out a week ago, and the flies were very interested in it, but didn't go near the others so I assumed they were Ok. We want to sell this pair of geese, but if there's any chance the eggs might hatch I don't want to take them to the swap until they do. I've been looking for incubation times on the internet, but of course I can't find them for this breed. Anyone have any ideas?

    30 days.
    I'd candle the eggs and check what you can see.
    I advise you handle them really careful incase they're rotten and explode on you.
    Good luck.

    It's
    duck eggs on this example but you get the general idea of what your looking at.
    Try to see if you can entice her off the nest with a treat.
    Good luck, ganders are tough to get around when they're in nest watch mode.
