One regular egg, one pullet egg, and one goose egg.
Yesterday the sap was really running and today it should be gushing from the trees. My first order of business will be to go around and take up the buckets. The next will be to go around and take up the eggs.
Cindy Lou Goose started laying eggs a couple days ago. I could have told you that from the goosey behavior out there. Yesterday I spent half my time chasing the geese away from anyone in their path. They are totally on a rampage.
Cindy is the all white one with the tub of ganders.
The males get very protective of Cindy this time of year. Which means OD spent all day yesterday chasing "fat and sweaty" creepy meats. I'm not sure what he thought the danger was - maybe that they would waddle over and look blankly at Cindy? I dunno. But since OD is a confirmed chicken killer I'll have to keep my eye on them.
But one thing is for sure... there will be eggs. So many eggs. We are definitely back in the egg business.
I want to thank my friend, K, over at Homesteading Housewives for posting this terrific recipe for a goose egg custard. Goose egg custard? Are you kidding me? Nope. How fun is that? Can you use goose eggs for cooking? Sure! Generally one goose eggs is equal to 3 regular sized chicken eggs. This recipe calls for two goose eggs - which I happen to have.
The Warden won't let me have anymore geese - tho you know how much I love them. So I'll be looking for ways to use them up. This custard sounds like a terrific place to start.
Happy Tuesday everyone - are you so excited for Spring to start? Do you have goose eggs? What are you doing with them?
