Will a Goose Sit on Bad Eggs

It’s a given that not all eggs a goose lays will be fertile. In other words, there is always a chance that a goose’s clutch will contain bad (infertile) eggs

Will a Goose Sit on Bad Eggs?

A goose may or may not sit on bad eggs – the reaction of geese to spoiled eggs varies from one individual to another. But there might be a pattern.

Inexperienced or new mother geese are more likely to sit on bad eggs than experienced mothers. Since it is their first time, they may not necessarily know when their egg has spoiled.

If you ever notice that your goose has abandoned its eggs, you should inspect the clutch. This way, you might be able to save the good eggs, if there are any.
