Why is Emily laying eggs and making a nest in Dec? It's winter time and they are according to everyone else suppose to start this towards Spring time when the weather is warmer? Should I take her 3 eggs and hope she gets the message to stop and wait till Spring or leave her be? There are 3 more geese that don't have this problem yet and hope they wait till the weather warms up next year. We live in Southwest Texas where you never know what the weather will be from one week to the next. You can have the air conditioner on one week and the next week the heater. Does this affect her doing this so soon?
