Well one of the girls (probably Lucy) laid another egg this morning. At least I think it was this morning. The DH let them out of the pen early this a.m. so I didn't really pay much attention to them. Around noon I went out to check the chickens as I am walking by the goose pen I see an egg in the corner of the pen in the dirt! I thought they weren't supposed to lay this late in the year. What I have noticed is that yesterday I filled up their big black rubber waterer. It is large and they like to squeeze their body in there and bathe. Lucy was bathing and then Padfoot jumped in and well.... you know. Anyway--today there is an egg. It is pretty dirty and I don't know if it could have frozen or not. It has been cold. I just washed it gently with a bit of warm water and put it in the incubator. I already have one in there that is veining and a baby goose in the living room. I think I am going to have to go back to the little waterers or I will never stop incubating. This is odd. But on a different fun note I took the baby goose and opened up the living room window and it was peeping or whatever sound you would say they make. The other geese who were at least 50 feet away all looked up and listened, alert. Then they started honking and coming toward the window. They stood out there honking until I put the baby back in the brooder and closed the window. Do you think they would hurt it if I put her on ground? I am not going to try, I was just curious.
