We have 5 geese(2 females/3 males), and they have not laid any eggs. When is their laying season? Last year we only had 2 females and 1 male, and we kept them confined. The geese laid a few eggs, but we picked them up and did not let them sit on them. Then, we let them keep their eggs and they made a nest and sat on three eggs for a couple of weeks. However, about one and a half weeks from the time they should have hatched, one of the geese accidentally crushed the eggs. Now our geese are free ranged and I am afraid they will try to find a secluded area in the woods to make a nest. Our neighbors geese did this and they were killed by coyotes. Should I build a shelter for them to make a nest in?
