Ok! I'm an idiot about geese. I bought these creatures for my wife. They intimadate my (BIG) dogs. They don't bite me MUCH!! Only when I'm getting water for the other birds & when I try to build other coops. THEY DON'T BITE MY WIFE!!! List of ??????????????????SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS: #1)How do you sex an African goose? #2)Will 2 females (UH HUM) with each other? I spotted both of mine on top of each other so I'm trying to figure out which is the male. At least 1 is laying eggs & I'm trying to figure out if they are even fertile. Will the eggs hatch, if they are fertile? This is the first batch of eggs for her/s. We live in NM. & it'snot cold here for another 2-3mo. They are 5mo. old. #3) Should the nest be covered? She layed them in a thick weed patch, in the middle of my yard. As we are expecting severe thunder storms today, & I had a 4ft.x4ft. sq. box, I covered the nest with both geese watching. The goose laying on them had come out for some food but now she has not gone back to the eggs. Did I do wrong by covering them? Thanks for any &all help this site is giving us!!
