    [​IMG] I was really disappointed yesterday, I found a Canadian Goose egg about 1 month ago and decided to put it in the incubator and see if it would hatch. Well, i guess it was one of the first if not the first egg she laid this year, because it was not in a nest. I found it laying by the shore line at a City lake, and I thought if would be cool to hatch and raise it until it was just old enough to hold its own. Well, I took it out yesterday and it was not fertile, because i cracked it open and it looked like it would have the day I put it in the incubator. So sad!
