    My goose is keeping it a secret too. Last year at this time mating was going on and her first egg was Jan 31, this year no mating and I don't think I'll see and egg anytime soon. Looks like the frozen tundra out side maybe that has something to do with it. [​IMG]

    Apparently my geese didn't get the no eggs notice. I have 9 so far and my girls are from last years hatch.

    I've been getting eggs but no mating yet. This will be a first for my goose and for me too! Lol... Last year I had 2 geese. Sadly I lost one and got a gander who thinks he's a chicken and wants nothing to do with my sweet goose, so will see what happens!

    I've got a goose brooding on some eggs right now! Lol, I have no idea if they are fertile or not, but we should know by Feb 15th or so.
