I can't figure out how to get pictures on her so I will continue on with my story. I was reading the farmers almanac and it said (I quote) "the good goose will start to lay on the second date of February". I must have an excellent goose and gander because she layed her first egg on the 18th of January. I have seen them, you know ..get... It.. Anyway, I have six fertile goose eggs from her and are incubating right now. Now to my question, my goose (Daisy) is pulling out my ganders (lance) feathers. They are outside during the day and are not pened up so she doesn't need "mental stimulation". He just stands there and let's up happen like its normal. They do get supplemented because of the snow coverage on our grass. But I want to know why he is just getting tortured and tolerates it!! She never has done this before and she started pulling out his feathers (and eating them) early January about a week before she started laying. Any help will be appreciated!!
