    And she's a buff goose! Holy cow that girl can lay and her hubbie is not too shabby at his job either! 3 eggs from this Little Miss and all are fertile and thriving in the bator! Now if I could only get the rest of them to be so productive! I'm not going to be able to put any more of her eggs in the bator - I'll have gooses coming out my ears - especially since I have to check fertility on at least 6 more pairs (that is just geese) and all the ducks too!

    Thanks guys - finally I have a good layer - I just went out to do the evening feed and guess what? Yup - another goose egg. There has got to be more than one laying now even though they are using the same nest because I just got one yesterday. I guess I will *have to* put this one in the bator as well...gotta make sure *all those Little Missys * are fertile, right? [​IMG]

    And I got my Holderread's letter today saying my buffs that were on order from last year will be here in 2-4 weeks! Gooses gooses everywhere....and there will be buffs coming out my ears.

    Why can't the dewlaps or mandarins lay like that? [​IMG]
