    What breed are they because most geese lay in late winter early spring depending on where you live, some like Chinese are laying now and will lay 2X a year fall and spring. Is it hot out? it's very hot and humid and mine are laying around more today.

    That could be the reason the geese are laying around more, make sure they have cool fresh water and a pool or something to get in to cool off.

    Most likely you won't see eggs till late fall since they are still young.But you never know one of our members has Chinese laying now and they were spring born.
    Pics when you can.
