I could hardly believe it, but one of my new geese just laid an egg. I know it is a goose egg because the chickens and ducks are cooped up today. I thought geese did not lay this time of the year. I saw them getting down to business in the wading pool a few days ago, but never thought I would find an egg! It is on the small side for a goose egg but I am guessing it is her first. Can you hatch the little eggs out or do I have to wait until they get bigger. Are they supposed to be laying? When do they stop. I think it is from the Africans but I also have a pair of Pilgrim. Any ideas on the hatching part? Thanks!
