Hi again, My geese have got themselves a nice little clutch of 8 eggs as of yesterday and I just came into some Khaki Campbell eggs a friend gave us. Since they're very likely fertile and my wife and I would really, really like some ducks again this year, we thought we might try and slip them in under the geese when they finally get broody. So im looking for a little advice yet again. Not knowing what triggers a goose to brood, im wondering how i should go about introducing the duck eggs. Should I set them in now amongst the 8(and counting) goose eggs, or wait until she starts sitting and slip them in then? Is this even a good idea ? Will the sudden appearance of more eggs cause my geese to brood, or will they only brood when they are ready? And if I introduce foreign eggs, will it possibly lessen the chances of my goslings hatching ? This all seems like a good idea as we dont have an incubator or the use of one, but then im loath to mess with the natural order of things without really having any clue as to what im doing. We'd reeeeally like to hatch these duck eggs which are likely good, but i'd like my goose to hatch her own goslings more. Any advice anyone could give would be appreciated. (also, thanks to those who replied in my last thread!) As a thanks-in-advance here's a link to a youtube video of my girly goose Scarlett laying egg #8. 'scuse the dorky narration, i was pretty surprised!
