    I've never had goose eggs but i've had swan eggs before.One egg would fill the whole frying pan.They were actually not that bad at all.

    apparently it is illegal....all i knew was the city of anchorage was encouraging people to get out and gather eggs to help bring down the population.....dont know if they still are...

    Yes, it is illegal to collect certain eggs without being "qualified" and you need to check with your Federal subsistence regulation book on Federal Public Lands of Alaska (pick up at ADF&G) or call your local FWS office.

    Default Oiling Eggs

    I suspect the city of Anchorage had good intentions but if you take eggs out of a goose nest, the geese will lay more. Here in upstate NY we are haveing a problem with non-migratory geese. The fish & game (DEC here) is oiling eggs to help with population control. The oiling prevents embryos from developing and the adult geese continue to incubate the "dead" eggs.

    I don't know about Alaska but in NY it is illegal to collect wild goose and/or duck eggs.

    It is illegal, Anchorage was doing it under a permit, Native people were doing it and they were leaving one egg in the nest. That way the geese do not lay more.

    Canada Goose eggs taste like spotted owl eggs if you ask me.
