    I have 3 ladies sitting. Problem is two of them insist on sitting on the same nest. They have been doing this for the duration of the hatch. Now it's getting close to hatch time and they are scooting all around knocking eggs out of the nest. The other goose only sits on hers at night. My incubators are full! These geese are a mess! Will it hurt for me to move the 2 sitters and fix their nest for them? They keep knocking eggs out and then trying to sit on them on the ground. And the one who only sets during has a good egg, but I'm afraid she's not sitting on it enough, it's a much younger egg or I would put in with the other 2. I hope some of what I just said makes sense. All advice appreciated!!
