We gave a friend a pair of our geese, one ran off, so they now have a lone goose, who has, in the last few days, taken to trying to hatch a bottle cap. She made a nest, pushed the bottle cap in there, and plopped down on it. Apparently she is taking very good care of it, but we are not optimistic that it will grow into Pepsi... Question is, what age do geese usually lay? She is about 6 months now, and I thought they had to be older. Plus, since she isnt laying, isnt it odd to be exhibiting broody behavior? Is it more of a seasonal thing? And....aside from the broody behavior, we didnt relaly know if she was a he or a she....so, do ganders ever act this way? Thanks for settling our curiosity!
