    Should I trust my broody goose on if her eggs are still viable?

    I don't have an exact time of when she started sitting on her eggs, but I know for sure she was sitting by 4/16.. shouldn't she have hatched by now, it's been 35 days minimum? (I think she may have been up to 1 week before that)

    Should I kick her off her nest and throw out her eggs? She is definitely not tame, so I can't just take her eggs from her to check and put back.


    BTW, I don't know if this goes here or under the topic "Geese" If so, I will try to figure out how to move it I guess..
