Hi all, I hope someone can answer a few of my questions. Many seem very knowledgeable about geese. I am new to geese and don't know the broodiness of geese. No, she is not mean. She will let me in the coop with her to check on her eggs. I have an Afrcian goose that is laying eggs right now. She is almost 7 months old. The daddy is a Sebastopol who is 9 months old. Daffy, the African goose has laid about 7 eggs so far. How long before she decides to sit on the eggs and try to hatch them? Is there an average of eggs that they lay when they decide to sit? Do you think the eggs are fertile at such a young age? I don't have the heart to break one open to check. If and when the eggs do hatch I'm curious to know what to expect with a cross like this. Has anyone ever had a Sebastopol, African cross? Is it like cats and dogs where 1/2 will look like Mom and the other 1/2 look like Dad?....... LOL. Of course one may look like both? I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks.
