all three geese are out of the shelter now. It is raining hard tonight. I bet they will rebuild another nest inside.
Oh my goodness! The female geese, all four, have decided to nest and keep stealing eggs from one another. One of the girls keeps building a new nest outside of the shelter, so I keep adding wood over top of her to keep out the sun and rain. Today, she tried hard to bite the other goose and get her off HER nest, then built another one and moved the eggs to that nest. This is the fourth move and the eggs should have hatched by now. I will let them fight for a while longer but if the eggs do not start hatching soon, they will begin to smell and the geese should abandon their nests at that point. It is pouring rain and the new nest she built has no cover. I am wondering if I will find her tomorrow back inside the shelter with yet another new nest that she won't let the other geese near. Silly goose!
