geese lay eggs that do not hatch
We have 3 geese that lay their eggs, and keep them in the same large nest. They take turns laying on the eggs, but they do not hatch. I assume they are sterile. I also have 2 resident ducks (brown in color), and a pair of Canadian geese that have been visiting us over the last 4 months. We would like additional ducks/geese, but I am unsure of the best method to go about introducing them. Can I purchase ducklings/goslings via the internet? Is it better to purchase them locally? I do not know of anyone who sells them in my area. It would be interesting and educational for my children if we could somehow obtain fertilized eggs and incubate them to hatching. I have read about some of the challenges in caring for a newly hatched gosling on this forum, and am leaning toward ducklings/goslings. Advice is greatly appreciated.
