    Hi guys,
    I'm just curious as to when geese mature, because I apparently have 1 male 1 female, and it is going into winter and I haven't seen them mating or him being dominent. Thanks ahead, Naomi.
     
  2. I think they start breeding activity on the first spring after hatching -- at least mine did -- but my books said that some can take two years to lay. I'd think breeding would start the first year though. Mine were approximately 8 months old when they started flirting with each other, and I think we first saw signs in late winter . . .
