Forgive me, this is my first year with a breeding pair of sebs and this may be an elementary question, but I want to be sure to do the right thing....
I live in NC and we're in the midst of a super cold wave with temps occasionally dipping into the lower teens at night, highs in the 30's and 40's. The sebs have been actively mating for about 2 weeks. The goose seems to have chosen a spot and works on digging and lining it daily but I haven't found any eggs.
We're expecting more winter weather in the form of snow and ice for the next three days. If she does lay, should I bring them indoors until she is ready to sit?
Will she become broody without the eggs piling up?
Should I move her nest to the barn? She seems to have decided on building it in a shed near the house. It's not ideal, certainly not raccoon proof, but I hate to move things and screw up any chances of her hatching a brood.
Thanks in advance!
