I have a pair of geese. The Female is an Embden, and the male is a Toulouse/Sebastapol cross. Squishy my female has been laying since late december. Yesterday we cleaned out the goose nest because it was starting to smell pretty bad. There were almost 30 eggs in the nest. Most of them were small and very discolored so I tossed all of those. I float tested the large ones and have six in the incubator. I cracked some and checked for fertility and we do have fertility. However, My female has shown NO interest in sitting at all. My gander however, sits on the nest all night every night, and today, after yesterday's cleanout has decided to sit full time. My female laid ONE egg last night and he has not left it all day. He is sitting there rolling it around under him, and arranging hay carefully around the egg and himself and even placing pieces carefully on his back. LOL Has a gander ever gone broody before?? I just don't know what to think!!
