    Do any of you who sell or re-home goslings let mom hatch? I'm curious how removing goslings works, if it does at all.

    We had to remove 2 goslings from one of our mothers last year as she and dad weren't taking care of them. They cried for days for them and it broke our hearts. We were thinking that they were just inexperienced parents and we're hoping that they'll do better this year. We're fully prepared to let them raise their own babies but willing to intervene if we have to.
