We had seven goslings hatch out on Monday. All the male geese took up waiting outside the hatching shelter on the weekend so we knew they were coming soon. The males also stopped eating, trashing their pool, and wandering around while they were on baby monitoring duties.
There are two other geese who are in the process of hatching out eggs. I’m not sure how well this clutch is going to turn out as they keep getting distracted by the new goslings and getting off their nest. One of the two geese was also egg dumping/partly nesting. I’m actually okay if all the eggs don’t hatch out as I don’t want to be completely over run with geese. I’m thinking these two geese should be culled later on as they aren’t good sitters.
