    Our little white chinese is been busy with the old boy in the neighborhood. I've seen them mating in the little kiddie pool in the back yard and today I found 2 eggs in a nest underneath the banana trees.

    I quickly checked and our cochins lay brown eggs, so.....

    We got her in Feb. so she is around 6 months old. both are very protective of the area. (banana trees)

    I've noticed that the eggs seem to be a little small for geese eggs. I have incubated some eggs in the past.
    Are they small due to her size???

    Quote:Chinas are smaller geese, I wouldn't expect a young goose to pop out an egg the size of an African.

    Well I'm not sure how long they(the eggs) have been therre. Since I found them she hasn't laid anymore. She's got a tidy little nest but only 2 eggs. She also doen't seem to interested in them.

    I'll check later today and let you guys know.

    thanks for your comments
