    Are you hoping that your goose goes broody and remains on the eggs until they hatch?

    I wouldn't think a goose would go broody so late in the year. Just because she lays an egg doesn't mean she wants to hatch it. For better information please check out the "Goose thread."

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    I hope you got your answer in the Geese forum. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

    What breed of geese do you raise?
