Last year was my first year having geese. I got 4 adults, two pair. Only they didn't act like pairs. Of course the goose would lay the eggs. Both laid eggs in the same nest. One gander became broody immediately, the other gander bred both females while the one gander sat on the eggs. Once they were happy with the number of eggs in the clutch the one gander and two females sat on the nest for the duration of incubation while the other gander acted as watch dog. Each goose and the single gander would take turns grazing, pooping and bathing and then go back to the nest, and then when needed the next would take their turn eating/bathing etc. The breeding Gander was always the watch dog and never sat on the nest. I wonder how they worked that out? Is this normal for a group of geese to take on these roles at breeding season? When I got them they were 4 years old, so I'm curious if they follow the same routine this year. There are 3 more geese, 1 goose, 2 ganders in the family now so I wonder how it will change.
