We got our first goose eggs today and right on time!! Three big beautiful eggs! But two of the eggs had the "bullseye" on them when we cracked them open!? :confused:

I know that with chicken eggs this means they are fertile! We are supposed to have 4 female geese but our crossbeak goose, Slappy, is now hissing at us when we enter the yard! He/she started this about a week ago, and he/she has become a bit more agressive with us. And my hubby said he swore Slappy was attacking one of the other geese in their pool! Were they mating?? I would love to have more geese but Slappy has a horrible crossbeak and I am very worried that it will be passed on to his/her goslings.

2 of the geese (Amy and Lilly) are 8 months old and 2 of them (Slappy and Gertrude) are 7 months old! All 4 are American Buff geese!
