So how are they paired up? or is one of the geese out in the cold. I have 2 pairs but I have heard that sometimes if there are more than 2 females to a gander one can be left out.
You've a nice group there please share pics of them all soon, it gets rather dead here on the goose thread.

Thank you they are all my babies. even when ornery. lol
Here's an update on my mom and her babies. 14 of the eggs hatched. They all hatched at different times. And don't have a single gosling to show for it. I am so frustrated. But mom still has 2 eggs left under her. This was a big disappointment and a big let down for me. Does anyone know what could have happened ?
@JLfarm I'm so sorry you lost them. she may have just been over whelmed with gosling hatching at different times staggered hatches really aren't so good.What were your temps, goslings can chill pretty fast too. If you finish these eggs off in the incubator I'd brood them inside and wait till warm weather to give them to the parents. Spring is really the best time for goslings.
Here is the goose hatcher's bible http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/491013/goose-incubation-hatching-guide-completed
