Egg Thief

Every day, Duncan and his Dad would raid the geese's nests and steal their eggs. This activity is Duncan's daily highlight. He loves the excitement of angering the geese and stealing their eggs right under their noses or should I say, beaks?

The egg thief in action. He has broken a few eggs in his haste to get away from the angry geese, and also due to his own clumsiness.

A pair of angry geese, honking and hissing at the humans who dared steal their eggs!

Doug has 18 eggs in a covered bucket that he is making into salted eggs. He found a recipe on how to do it, and he says it'll take about three months to get firm salted eggs.

Yesterday, I shared about the geese laying their eggs in our yard with some church ladies, and everyone wanted me to bring some for them at our next meeting. They enjoyed my recounting the story of Duncan stealing the geese's eggs.
