    Hi, my three lovely geese and their gander have made a nest, all three girls are laying in the same nest but none have gone broody so far. I'm concerned what will happen if they all go broody at the same time. Do I need to build 2 more nesting boxes and put eggs in each to encourage them to go in different places? I have read that geese pair bond, does this mean the gander will only be mating with one of the females? I know these are probably really basic questions, do forgive my lack of knowledge on all things goose.

    It quite normal for all the girls to use the same nest. Do you want any of them to go broody?

    Yes, I really wanted them to hatch some eggs. I was worried about trying to hatch them myself, so I was hoping at least one would go broody.
