    Only three in the nest, I thought they were suppose to lay lots more then that, will she keep on laying eggs? Crystal

    If you want to get the most eggs out of your goose, you have to take the eggs and incubate. You can get 30+ this way. But, if you let your goose go broody immediately by leaving too many eggs in the nest, you may get only a handful.
