So, when exactly to geese start laying? 5 months? Do they need nesting boxes like chickens?
Mine just take over the chickens' nest boxes. Who is going to argue with a goose?
Mine started laying about 7 or 8 months.
Your geese may or may not lay in the first year. Geese lay annually during winter (typically January through March) regardless of when they are hatched. From what I have experienced, the goose picks a spot to lay her eggs. Even if you grab them to put in the incubator, she'll keep going back to the same spot.
From what I have read, if you want to have a broody goose sit on her clutches, it's best to put up a shelter around where she is laying her eggs rather than trying to pre-determine where she will lay. 3 or 4 straw bales should do the trick.
