Our brown chinese goose has built a nest, and is laying 1 egg every 2-3 days. I am worried that at that rate, most of them won't be fertile any more by the time she sits??

Usually they will lay 12-15 in their first sit.

Basically let them sit on the freshest (normal sized) 9.

The eggs keep relatively well for 3 weeks, but are less viable than the fresher ones.

Good Luck
