Beautiful eggs from your beautiful girls! Congratulations to all!
thank you !!!!
Hahaha well glad for the responses from you and a few others to know I'm not the only one who's having/ has had this experience!! I guess I'm just Big Bird around here :>
Wow, big! I guess you're going to eat it? Haven't heard of anyone incubating goose eggs yet. My Jumbo Pekins just matured and I don't know if my girl will start laying in this cold weather. Probably Spring I guess
Armiga, I am candling my duck eggs.
From what I read here, it takes a while after they have been incubating to see veins. Have you checked out the sticky on hatching waterfowl eggs? Look at the top of the Duck Forum for the link.
Here is a video of my Jumbos with their collie dog. They run around the yard with him and follow him everywhere! They spend all day trying to keep up with him, waddling around from one end of the yard to the other. Dog and ducks; best of friends! In this vid you can hear my little Abbie-Beak squeaking and squealing in her little duckie sounds the entire time. This video makes me so happy :>
Hello Fellow Pekin Duck Lover Friends,
I have 6 ducks and 3 geese that are 6 months old. The 2 males are beginning to fight and the geese gets in there and bites them too. One had a bloody wing and we had to separate them. I didnt expect this inharmony. Will they be harming their ducklings in the Spring too?
i gave it to my father in law to eat . i have 2 female geese so theres no goslings in my future
It's best to keep mama and ducklings separated but in view of the rest of the flock for a least 3 weeks, gives ducklings a chance to get their legs and to learn to keep away from grumpy flock members. I usually use the plastic poultry fencing from Lowes and those fiber glass push in fence poles. keeping them were everyone can see them helps to all to integrate a lot smoother when the time comes. Fighting is normal behavior between drakes and even the ducks can get into spats. my geese always feel like they have to be involved in everything even breaking up mating between the ducks. Geese mating season begins usually from Jan on into spring so beware if you have a gander he is going to be very protective of his mate.
