    Yeah being that young she probably isnt going to go broody, at least not "seriously" this first time around. Mine layed around the same time, became broody for about 3 days and then stopped. (it takes about 30 days to hatch out goslings, from what I've heard). And, since she is young, there is a slim chance that the eggs are fertile (I'm assuming your gander is the same age as your goose), so for now, looks like you'll be having some delicious omelets! I wrote "probably" and "slim chance" because once in a while, young geese do pull it off, but generally not.
