I have some geese that are laying. They have a gander, too. I'm not sure what breed. They look like several. I got them from the feed store at least a year ago, so who knows the breed. They look sort of African and sort of Chinese. One gander is white, so I'm pretty sure he's a Chinese, right? I have no idea what I'm doing with geese, but I'm pretty schnazzy with ducks, guinea, turkeys, and chickens. I incubate my chicken, turkey, Pekin, and guinea, but my geese have made a nest. Each day they add at least one egg. Now, with my Muscovy, they eventually down the nest and start setting. These geese have been adding to the nest every day, and then covering it again with straw to the point that you can't even see the eggs. The nest probably has 10 eggs in it right now, but I have several geese. I never see a goose setting the next like my ducks set, but they keep adding to it. My Muscovy will sometimes go for a week adding to a nest before setting it. I can tell they're about to set because they will start to down the next. Do geese follow this same basic format? Like I said, they keep adding eggs to the same nest and it looks very organized and normal. Still, they aren't downing the nest or setting it. If the geese follow the same format as the Muscovy and will eventually set----- how long does that usually take. With the Muscoby, it's sometimes a week or so before they'll take up residence on their nest. Do Geese do this also, or should I raid the next and incubate? I prefer natural setting although it returns lower hatch rates usually, but I don't want to lose the goose eggs.
