Question: do geese lay eggs daily like chickens?
They do not. They are seasonal layers and lay only during their breeding season, which is usually early to late spring.
Am I wrong by assuming that they lay in spring and if so how long do they lay
Usually March to June. Depending upon breed it might be 20-80 in the season. They will lay every 2-3 days.
If you're looking for eggs, I'd recommend ducks. I think they have a longer laying season, and they lay a bit more than chickens, as I've heard? Their eggs are also larger, and some people swear tastier/less allergenic.
Is there a better or worse breed for duck egg production
Absolutely. Specialised breeds such as the white layer duck lay over 300 per year on average.
Some are definitely better for laying. There are hybrids like golden 300s made to lay a lot of eggs. Then you also have heritage breeds like Welsh Harlequins and Indian Runners that lay well if you want to stick to a real breed and not a hybrid.
