    I have 3 geese 1 male and two females, I think?
    I saw that the geese did it also several times with the two female.
    Can I asume that geese only have sx with male and female?
    And about how long after that should it take to get to eggs?
    Thanks

    I am learning myself yet so hopefully more will respond, but from what I've see so far, it was around 2 weeks from the time I noticed them starting to breed. The males have gotten kind of hissy, not mean at all, but the hiss if you get near them. I have seen my saddleback male on my white male, he puts up a bit of a struggle, but he will flatten out and let the sb male have his way. I'm shure that they are both males. It has happened a couple of times right after white male has done it with a goose. Must be a dominance thing in the goose world! I have seven sebbies, 4 gooses, and 3 Ganders, they are about 10 or 11 months old.


    Just noticed, welcome to BYC! :D

    Shouldn't take long after the gander has a go at your goose. My goose was laying before I saw the gander at her and we watch ours pretty close as my daughter is very entertained by them. Good luck and oh yes I haven't noticed them actually going together same sex if that helps you any.
