    Hi. I have a female brown Chinese goose she just started laying eggs and I was wondering if I put her with a gander would they mate and then the eggs be fertile or is she done mating while she is laying eggs.

    thanks in advance.

    You can put a gander with her. If they bond quickly. He will fertilize future eggs.
