    Hi,
    We rescued 4 domestic white geese- at least one gander. One of the geese has laid 11 eggs and is now sitting. If they are fertile and hatch, can we keep all the goslings together? Will there be too much risk of in -breeding? ( we will take the eggs next time if we have too many but they might hide them etc). If there are a few ganders, will they fight? We are vegan smallholders so have no wish for lots of geese but nor do we want to sell them for meat/ in case someone does this. Thank you

    I have brother and sister breeding.

    They probably will end up fighting,just let the work it out,and all should be fine.
