Hi, I'm not sure if this can or should be posted here but, I'll try....I need some help!!! Here goes:
I have a greylag goose and 2 ducks, one buff orpington and one cayuga. The ducks are male and the goose female. The goose laid 3 eggs last night and I was wondering if the ducks and goose can crossbreed or is she laying non-fertile eggs? Also, what should I do w/ the eggs? She is laying on them (sometimes). They are all 7 1/2 months old and have lived together since they were one day old. Thanks in advance!!
I have looked on forums more related to ducks/geese but, haven't rec'd. any answers yet....so I thought I'd write on the old faithful MI-sportsman and see what comes up!!!

You can eat the eggs or watch them rot.

Just as hawks and eagles don't produce eagawks, ducks and geese won't make deese...or gucks, or whatever the he*l you'd call such a creation.

Claudette Colbert I believe it was...even a fertilized egg can be eaten...just as long as it is only a few days old...after that the embryo starts to develope...and the eggs get boney....:lol:

You have recieved the correct answer to your question, they cannot cross.
However, I have a question....you said it was a gray leg goose.... that is a wild species..... are you sure it isn't a toulouse or pilgrim?

Yes, my goose is, for sure, a greylag. I bought her from a dealer and she looks just like a greylag. I have been eating her eggs as to date, but, would like to hatch some in the spring. Thanks for the info.!
