    for about the past week, I've been getting a mystery egg in the duck house, where the geese are laying

    when you look at it, it has a slight blue tint to it, it's the same length as a pekin egg, but slightly fatter, though in the pics I took it looks white.


    of my 7 girls I KNOW are laying, I know all thier eggs, at first I thought the runners, but they lay TINY cute little eggs [​IMG]

    the only other girl I've got is Sage, my blue swed. but she is small, about the same size as my mallard hens. i don't think she could pass something this big [​IMG]

    if the geese wern't laying in the house i'd almost be half tempted to leave them and see if anyone sets [​IMG]

    any thoughts?
    heres the mystery egg compared to my hand

    how good of broodies are blue sweds??, i heard really good, thats why i got a blue swedish, even at just over four months would she get the idea if i left her eggs alone for a while??,if she'd lay anywhere else but where the geese are nesting!, or could I foster a few eggs to my muscovy nest?, but then what would happen when her eggs hatched a whole week earlier than the muscovies?? O_O

    I've only had two pair, and they didn't go broody until warm weather.
    Someone out there must know.
