    I received two Chinese geese a few months ago from my mother. I've known the geese since they we're babies and they're about 2 now. In late February she started her nest and has since laid 37 eggs, the most recent Being today. She started lining her nest with down which I've read means she's getting ready to go broody. Is it normal for for this much time to go by between her first eggs and now?

    Hope it helps. Becoming familiar with the site can take a little time. I don't even use FB, so you can imagine what kind of a state I was in, when i first joined [​IMG]
