    My geese are egg laying machines! Hubby went out to feed the geese and found Karessa sitting on 6 eggs, Lil Patty sitting on 5 eggs, Minxy sitting on 6 eggs for a total of 17 NEW Sebbie eggs.

    We found 6 eggs under some hay in an unoccupied nest on Saturday and we're unsure who laid those. It could have been Tansy or Petunia. Neither of them have been sitting yet. Eggs, Eggs, Everywhere!!

    Good thing you don't live in Ontario Canada....or they would be frozen solid [​IMG] but oh so exciting to hear. I want wait for warmer weather and eggs from my geese and ducks. Right now the ducks and chickens are the only ones laying...but nothing is fertile

    Laurie, Your geese are well ahead of mine and I live below you...Whats up with that !! LOL I did get my 1st sebbie egg today, but I am glad they waited this long before getting started. I guess you will have sebbies running everywhere. [​IMG] When do you expect some goslings ?

    Our temps have been in the 40's and 50's. It was up near 60 the other day! I was outside in shorts! Felt good, let me tell you!

    Steve, I have no idea why they're laying so early. We've done nothing differently than we've before yet they're all laying like crazy!

    We're expecting our first hatch between Feb 9th-12th. We had 2 quitters today which is always sad but that's how things go sometimes.

    Hope you have successful hatches. After tonight we have a nice forecast for several days [​IMG]

    The first year I had my sebbies they started laying in Nov(and they were only 8 months old) and nothing was fertile [​IMG] . I think the males just were not old enough though. Thankfully, ever since then they have been more on track laying later in the season(Jan-Feb). I have a dusk-til-dawn light in the center of my yard(it was there before I got back into poultry) and I first thought that was the reason, but I guess not because nothing has changed.

    There's no artificial lighting outside here so that can't be the case why they're laying here. I can't figure it out for the life of me. Not a thing has changed from last year but this year they started laying early.

    In total I think we've collected about 40 eggs so far. Then we've left some with some of the geese to hatch out.

    But my Indian Runners aren't laying. What's up with that? Darn things! I have orders out the wazoo and no eggs from them!
