    Marty1876 Hi Everyone!

    Geese are far more broody than ducks or chickens, so the odds are very excellent they will sit their own eggs, if you just provide them with nesting material and leave them to be themselves. Oh, and I'd find a way to feed and water from OUTSIDE them pen, some geese are very teritorial and protective about eggs, hatching, and offspring. Be warned. However, they are generally very good parents. I've seen them kill possems and raccoons both for entering the pen at my moms. I will probobly be taking our goose eggs away until I think they are almost done laying, then I'll let them set the last 10 or so.
