    Hi,
    I am new to the goose world and need a little help. My Toulouse Goose has been working on her clutch for 4 weeks now. She is turning eggs and continuing to lay eggs. She sits on her clutch off and on during the day, but not at night. Is there a reason why she is not sitting on her clutch yet? Is it possible the male goose she is paired with is preventing her from sitting?
    Thanks any advice is much appreciated

    You g geese may or may not sit the clutch threw to hatching. All you can do is watch her and see if she truly starts to sits the nest.
