Goose is sitting!

Oh wow!  Goose is sitting.  All our male geese, Gershwin, Godzilla and Gilbert have become particularly protective over Goose.  In fact, Gershwin is a right royal pain every time we enter the Chicken Run area where we house our poultry.  Goose is flattened over what we believe to be 3 eggs, nestled in a shallow hollow which I dug for her when she seemed in nesting mood, under her shelter.  We are not sure if they are fertilized, despite there being 3 males on the property.  Last time she sat we had to forcibly remove her from the next and dispose of approximately sixteen rotten eggs...Well, we can always hope, can't we? Will be counting 28 days from now...
