    We have 1 male african goose, 1 female african and 2 female turloise (sp) geese. Our turloise has been sitting on approx 23 eggs since before Easter. Surely she wouldn't be sitting on the eggs if they were bad right? It's starting to really smell and would hate to distroy them if they were still good. Can anyone get me some insite on this topic? Thanks! Melissa

    Yes, they will. Is your gander 2 years old? If my memory holds out, 28 days.
