Broody

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

We have 12 female African geese (and 12 males). They have laid over 200 eggs so far this spring, however only ONE girl has gone broody and that was 28 days ago (she has a couple of eggs that have internally pipped)

 

Is there som,e way to promote broodiness in these other girls??

You could incubate them or sell them

Have you been collecting the eggs right away? If you leave the eggs for a couple of days the nest will fill up and they might go broody. One thing that works for me is I leave a light on one day for 24 hours, they think this is the longest day of the year and might just sit. If this doesn't work the first time, in a couple of days, do it again

We have only collected a few (3 in the incubator now) I will try the light.

btw  the one goose that was broody has hatched two beautiful goslings
