A friend of mine has a pair of Embden-type geese, 3 years old. They both seem perfectly healthy and active. This spring, however, the goose suddenly developed a very large rump. It happened in the course of three days after laying about 70 eggs. It looks very dramatic, but other than being a bit disabled from dragging the load, the goose seems fine. I don't have any experience with laying geese, so I don't know if it's normal or not. My own geese have always been on the Christmas table before laying was an issue. Can anyone help? Is it just how laying geese look? If not, what could it be? It's Mother Goose on the right From behind Photo bomber!
