My Super Africans geese are about 3yrs. old. They usually start laying in mid Feb. But haven't , yet the other breed of geese I have are. I am wondering if they could be too fat. Both of their bellies almost drag on the ground... larger or more 'dropped than they used to be. I read maturity can cause this somewhat, but both look like they are caring basketballs there...not sure whether to keep feeding them or force them to eat mostly grass for now... We have 'some' spring grass growing...

Nah... females will go through laying cycle regardless of weight. Not all lay right on schedule every year. I wouldn't worry.
