Goosey goosey lay a little egg for me

Well it’s nearly December and my Geese seem to think it’s spring??? I’m not sure why but they are mating and laying eggs. This is not unheard of but they are usually a bit later than this. We really don’t want goslings yet, as they mainly graze and the grass at this time of year isn’t right for them. It’s much cheaper to raise them in the spring. So we are hoping she will have enough eggs left by January to start sitting. Geese normally lay between 40 and 60 eggs a year at the rate of one every other day, so you can do the maths. We ate the egg this morning, one is plenty for both is us to have fried egg on toast.
