    My Chinese goose has laid a total of 37 eggs, a lot have unfortunately broke but her nest is still very full at 26. This is her first Time laying fertilized eggs. She's doing great as a first time mom, she's rolling out the bad ones. I've read they do that, is this true? My other question is she can't obviously sit on all those. Should I take out the older ones or let nature take course?

    Can you candle the eggs to see if they are viable?
