Posts tagged “Egyptian Goose


Egyptian Geese can usually expect 5-9 eggs in a typical brood, so fifteen is way over the mark, my only theory is this is two broods together…some kind of adoption…but there were only two adults watching over the chicks….so I really don’t know…

Apparently long-tailed tits will feed another brood of chicks if they lose their own brood…so there are fragments of compassion in nature too…but to add that as possible evidence for my theory is probably a bit out there….I just can’t imagine a goose sitting on 15 (possibly more) eggs…can you?
