How often do Canada geese lay eggs?

A:

Quick Answer

Full Answer

Geese eggs go through a 28 to 30-day incubation period before hatching. When they finally hatch, the emerging young or goslings will use a sharp, hard egg tooth to assist them in breaking out of their shell. Only 24 hours after hatching, goslings leave their nests and are guided to sources of water and food with other newly hatched goslings and their parents.
