    We had been observing from a distance 6 goose eggs at the edge of our pond. They were laid approx 2 weeks ago. This morning, we found them submerged under 6 inches of flood water (for approx 2 hours). We recovered the soggy nest and eggs and placed them on higher ground, but the female won't sit on them. We have moved them inside and placed them in warm litter and under a heat lamp. Any suggestions? Are we too late?
