Since snohomish county is convinced that my farm is killer whale habitat I figured I might as well start adding some waterfowl.
The goose egg on the left is massive. It's very heavy, feels like a pound or so. It is easily twice as heavy as the turkey egg in the center, and maybe 4 times the weight of the large chicken egg on the right.
This is where those emu/ostrich incubation trays really shine. Here's a picture of the goose eggs sharing a tray with some chicken eggs.
I hatched a batch of call ducks last year and they really worked out well. There's plenty of water around the property for them to play in and they forage very well. Unfortunately they like ripe tomatoes. but I like roast duck, so I guess we're even.
