Do I have an odd gander? This evening my gander went to the nest, sat on the eggs, and spent an hour cleaning up and rearranging the nest. He got out, but the goose did not go in. There was a garter snake under the dog house nesting box today when I went in to clean out the pen this morning. Could this have something to do with their behavior? This is the 2nd clutch of eggs (had to throw out the first batch), so I don't want to loose them.
