Well we have been having a LOT of rain the last few weeks. About a week and a half ago a friend of mine showed up with 8 goose eggs. He said that his sister had rescued them from thier flooding creek. Being the air head that I can be so often I didnt think twice and said sure I will try putting them in the bator. They were sooooo cold. He said she had grabbed them up the night before and put them under some banty hens.. I really wish I could have seen that since these were huge eggs..lol Well, I candled one and was pretty sure I saw some movement so I put them in. All they could tell me was that they had been set on for about 3 weeks.. I kept trying to candle and finally did the warm water test and knew that at least 5 were alive. I upped the humidity around Wed. and sat back and waited. I truely thought they were just from thier own geese. A couple days later I asked what they were and if she wanted them back......... Oh he said, they are wild canadian geese and no she doesnt want them back. AHHHHHHHHH!!!! I have illigals..lol Of course 6 out of 8 eggs hatched over the weekend. I called the DNR this morning and they gave me the number for my local guy. I left him a message so he is suppose to call me back and pick them up tomorrow. At first I was going to raise them up a little and then turn them loose but then I decided that I didnt want to feed them and have the kids fall in love. I currently have 8 other legal goose eggs hatching right now so we will have plenty of goslings. Some times I wish I can say no but am glad I could save these little fellas.. Jenn The baby duckling will miss these guys too..
