« on: May 05, 2015, 05:25:01 pm »
Hi,

Ok so my embden geese won't go broody, have thrown away that many egg's I can't count. I have gone a bought a pair of Muscovy. How many goose egg's could I expect a muscovy duck to sit on and hatch. Any other advice please

One of our ducks hatched two goslings with her own two ducklings, so yours would probably manage 4 to 5 goose eggs.  One of our hens also hatched two goslings, but was very puzzled when they waded into puddles, and did her best to follow!!  They were all reared successfully and became 'normal' adult geese.
