    About 45 days ago I purchased some goose eggs for my broody goose Lucy. She sat on the eggs and only took breaks from the nest to steal duck eggs to add to her nest. Unfortunately none of the goose eggs made it to hatch. Now Lucy doesn't want to quit sitting on the nest. I finally blocked her from getting to the nest a couple of days ago. On average how long des it take for a goose to break being broody?

    Quote:geese can be persentent If she is up and walking around sje might be broken now. If she spends a lot of time sitting in one place she isn't over it.
