My senior goose is now sporadically setting on a nest of 7 eggs (2 are very small so probably belong to the younger girls)! Should I remove the eggs so she doesn't hatch them in the wrong season? I'd planned to get an incubator this year and not allow any of the geese to set because it's so hard on them, but wasn't prepared to find them actually setting so early. I've been locating and discarding eggs up til now because you indicated it was too early, and because I have nowhere cool enough to keep them without freezing them while I wait to gather a whole clutch. However, Tiffany seems to have nested below the hanging chicken feeder, so I didn't find the most recent eggs until I saw her setting yesterday. Will they all lay in the same nest? If they do, would the females take turns setting, or does one take on the task herself? I know that poultry literature says you can use one nest for up to 3 females, so how to they divide up the setting work?

Wish I knew what to tell you. For chickens, I think one takes over a nest but really doesn't care who's eggs they are laying on.

Well I realized this morning that Tiffany (the older gal) was out taking a stroll and one of the young girls was in the carrier setting Tiff's eggs (wasn't that nice of her?). Wink
