In the Brooder
- Aug 5, 2019
i have only 3 landes females (one is on pic in profile) and two emden (male and female)
Sometimes(uncommon although) geese lay in fall. The reason your geese are probably laying is because there is a gander present now. They've never mated and the gander could've triggered your females to become hormonal.Hey Mate, we got something strange happening, we found a goose nest outside with like 8 eggs, they made a nest in grass. We are not sure if they are fertile as the gray landes has been spotted there, if its only from one or from more at the same nest.
it's too late or too early to have eggs we think, on the other hand if they are laying now, would they on end of winter when it should be?
Yes those are my Brown African geeseBy African do you mean super African? I notice the geese in your profile pic have dewlaps
hello again, we got like 15 eggs so far, we moved 'em to the geese house, but i've seen only one taking care of the nest (we have 3 nests and only one gained eggs one per 2 days) so seems like only one is laying now. There are enough eggs to become broody but it doesn't look they would like to be broody now, some ppl told me that it is possible for them to hatch and raise goslings in winter.
btw we've seen them several times to be mating with the gray geese, but what was strange one gray was on the other then the gander took place on the back of the goose. could the gray geese that we mistook for gander last time, be some kind of "lesbian" or it was just a game, it looked weird why one female is top on the other.
but they are lovely all 5 together, they are doing nicely.
