    Sex is a strong force. If they are of opposite sex and mature, they will breed. (Even same sex will make a pretty good attempt.) Although some geese start this early, mine always started somewhat later in the spring. Providing a pool of water facilitates breeding for larger, clumsier birds.

    Ok, thank you for your advice on that! I am not quite sure what their age is but they look pretty mature! They also have a dam they can go to bu haven't yet!

    Sour land is right. When they are ready they will breed.

    They'll start to breed when they are mature enough. How old are they? Make sure you have a shallow pool nearby because if they are going to breed they will do it in water. I suggest going to walmart and getting one of those blue plastic kiddy pools. Good luck!
