    By my calculations, we're now past 30 days and my goose is still glued to her nest. I can't seen any signs of pipping in the 6 eggs she has under her. It's her first time at this. She did roll an egg out of the nest a week ago that had gone bad. She's been very dillegent at sitting, turning, etc.

    Will she eventually give up or will I need to intervene and get her off the nest?
