    On average, I have heard that geese begin laying at around 32 weeks or the next breeding season, but I have another question.

    We have a pair of Canada geese that are resident and stay at or around our house all year. They have done this for about 5 years. However, I had yet to see them lay until this year. Last night her nest was destroyed by a raccoon, but I was fortunate to save 2 eggs. So my question is:

    1. At what age do Canada geese begin laying? ----- 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, etc..?

    2. Will Canada geese re-nest?
