My Embden goose finally started sitting on her eggs today. She has been laying for nearly 2 months, and I threw out 25 eggs that went bad a couple of weeks ago. She has 7 eggs now. This is my first year with a potential mom and I have a few questions. Will she continue to lay eggs now that she is on the nest? If I move her nesting box to a more protected area now, will she still sit on the eggs? Should I change the nesting material now that she is settled in? How long will she stay on the nest? How can I make her the most comfortable? How can I discipline dad so that he will not get more aggressive? He learned not to bite by grabbing his bill, and now he stops when I wave a finger at him and yell "no," but I noticed he was more protective today. If the eggs hatch, could I sneak some additional babies into the bunch and avoid the brooder? I want to add another breed, but past attempts have not had a good outcome. Thanks for your help.
