How Do Geese Mate?

Answer

Unlike most birds, a male goose actually has a penis. This is then, as is traditionally done in most animals, inserted into the females cloaca, where sperm is then shot up into the oviducts, which then fertilize the eggs.

The actual process of how geese physically mate is very similar to how all other birds mate. Once geese choose a mate, they mate for life. You can find more information here: http://www.hsus.org/farm/resources/animals/ducks_and_geese/ducks_and_geese.html
In order for geese to reproduce, the male aligns his genital opening with the female's, and sperm is transferred. When it is time for the female to lay the eggs, the male will stand watch so that predators will not have the chance to attack the female or eat the eggs. The eggs are laid out in the open, so it is important that they be guarded in this way. One egg is laid per day for approximately five days, and then all the eggs will be incubated together until they hatch.Geese mate for life, starting from the age of three when nesting instincts begin to take hold and lasting until they die of old age at around 20. If one of the bonded pair dies prematurely, the 'widow' or 'widower' will find another mate, who will become the new life partner.
