    I have 2 African geese, they are 8 months old, I was just curious as to when I should expect them to start laying, if I have a female?

    Lol i see everyone posting about their first eggs, and I'm jealous [​IMG]

    Awesome! I'm hoping that I have male and female

    One is smaller than the other, and they have different pitched honks.. but I am clueless as to sexing them.

    Should I make a nest box, or will (if) she lay in the shavings?
