I MUST ASSUME SURELY THAT ALL THE FIRST 9 EGGS WILL HAVE DIED AS THEY GOT COLD DURING THE DAY AFTER MBEING WARM AT NIGHT AND I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT THE VIABILITY OF GOOSE EGGS ALSO FALLS OFF AFTER THE 10TH DAY ( THE FIRST EGG HAS NOW BEEN LAID 19 DAYS AGO) SO WHAT ACTION WOULD YOU PLEASE TAKE UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES?
PERHAPS THE GEESE ARE TOO YOUNG TO TAKE ON PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY NOW AS THEY ARE BOTH ONLY 10 MONTHS OLD BEING HATCHED IN MAY 2014...........ANY ADVICE MOST WELCOMED.

they sometimes sit for a few hours just to warm them up and keep them viable.
They may well be young and a bit inexperienced, but I would give them a chance to have a go!
It is frustrating, but they usually know what they are doing, even that young, remember they are still adult geese
