Today I found a nest in my goose pen with a clutch of two eggs laid there! I'm sooooo excited because I'm sure my Toulouse goose (Louise) who is 6 months laid them and then hid them by covering them with wood chips. I figure my African goose (Ee'qua) is a gander because of his clumsy attempts at trying to mate with her and his aggression towards the male roosters in the pen next to them. Louise is very patient, let him walk across her back trying to "do the deed." I took the two eggs inside and put them in the refrigerator. I figure it's too early to try to hatch these eggs and she's too young since these are new eggs. They're most likely not fertile since Ee'qua hasn't gotten the hang of the mating thing. I doubt the eggs are bad because it's been around 30F at night at 50s in the daytime. I'll float them before I cook them to be on the safe side. Anyway, I was so excited about it and told my dh and he was nonplussed over why I should be so excited. But he's happy that I'm happy. But I thought I'd share. Maybe in the spring I'll try raising geese!
