These girls thought sharing the same nest for laying meant sharing the same nest for sitting. You should have seen how confused they looked once the urge to go broody came! They are not mean geese - so the half hearted attempts to chase the other away just wasn't good enough! Poor things! Now, everytime one gets up the other one steals her eggs. The other day during the midst of eggnapping the missing one came back and then stole the entire nest the napper was sitting on! LOL...thief #1 got confused and sat down halfway between the two! 17 eggs between them - due to hatch anyday! And here is my dewlap nest - too bad they are probably half buff geese and half dewlap. She just keeps laying and laying and laying though - good practice for next year I suspect!
