This is our first year with geese. Our nine geese free range all day and then are locked in their enclosure at night. This morning my son found one of our toulouse geese on a nest in our carport. She has 3 or 4 eggs so far and is gathering nesting materials. How long can she leave the nest and have the eggs still be viable? She has been locked up every night, leaving her nest and eggs unprotected. Now that we know she has a nest, we want to make sure she and the eggs are protected and we also don't want to scare her off the nest. Can we put a temporary fence around her without scaring her off? Can we move her eggs to a new nest in the enclosure without scaring her off? What should we do?
