Geese and ducks

jreichmanJune 8, 2009

We have 2 geese and a duck that have been sitting on their nest for over a month. I am guessing these eggs are not going to hatch but the birds keep sitting on them. Should we remove the eggs from the nests? or will they figure it out on their own? Thanks for any advice.

Geese and Muscovy ducks take up to 35 days to hatch, according to the quick search I did on the internet.

....and if the eggs are infertile they'll figure it out on their own. They know when to abandon the nest if the eggs don't hatch.
