So... My best broody goose is sitting on 8 eggs at the best location which I would like her to continue to sit in the years to come. However this year I don't need 8 more goslings -- I already hatched out 2 myself, 3 goslings a year is plenty for our garden weed control. I really want her to hatch out something so she has positive association of this nesting site. And I'm too nice to steal her babies later on. I don't think my geese ever forget things haha. My last egg in the bator has just pipped internally. I slipped it under the goose so it should hatch out in the next day or two. Will my goose abandon all her eggs for this one gosling ?? Her eggs are still 10 days away. Fingers crossed she will.
