This is the time of year my goose, Saro, starts laying. I got a wonderful offer from Common Sense Farm to use some of the space in their amazing steampunk incubator (yes, I'll get pictures next time I am there!). While I do have visual evidence that the eggs are being fertilized Saro isn;t the best mother when it comes to setting. She sticks with it for a while and after a few days gets bored and takes off for the stream and forest with Cyrus and Ryan. This leaves the eggs cold or hen pecked after a while of neglect. Last time she sat one gosling made it from fifteen eggs. This year I am hoping to incubate a clutch with better success. that or I will be eating very large, gelatinous, omelets into April.
