    Its been so long since I've had geese, I'm trying to remember! It seems to me, that I was using goose eggs one year for Thanksgiving baking and those were early spring babies I had, hatched in April I think. Not much help I know, maybe somebody with geese will see this and can give the correct answer!

    i think it's up to a year old, depending on when they are born...

    If they are hatched in the spring, the next spring they should be laying.
