I am a 71-year-old retired radio/TV announcer and horse-trainer. Today, my Domestic Goose is hard-setting for the first day, and that is the basic reason I joined today. I have 24 laying hens, a rooster, 5 duck hens, a drake, two geese, and a very good dog. (A good dog is one that is not interested in poultry for lunch.) The birds give me an average of 8 eggs a day, and as many as 13, between the chickens and the ducks. I live in the Ozark Mountain area on three acres. I look forward to learning from people who are smarter than I, and sharing what I can. To extend an earlier ask question, will Georgette accept the ducklings that hatch as her goslings hatch? Thank you for the opportunity to share. Oh, a final thought: Merry Christmas to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
