Unfortunately, there is no way to make a hen go broody. It is a hormonal thing that cannot be controlled. Also, taking an egg like that is illegal and it will be illegal for you to own the goose if you do manage to hatch it. There are penalties involving hefty fines and in some cases jail time. If I were you I'd go put that egg back in the nest and get some domestic goose eggs to hatch if you really want geese.
