We acquired two geese this past fall and due to the beginning of some aggressive behavior we have given them the enclosed garden area (about 25x70) as their own personal space, they also have a secured 6x10 room off the main chicken coop that is theirs. My question, I went out the other day to check on a broody chicken hen I have and witnessed the geese mating (or attempting to mate) I have since seen the behavior leading up to the mating, but not the actual mating a few more times. This is a bonded pair that raised a clutch for the previous owner last year so I know they can and have done the job but my question is, how long after mating should I see the first egg? I have walked the garden and their *house* and not seen any yet..
