In this image, the babies are staying close to mom as she begins walking on the path to the water. Canada geese lay 4 to 7 eggs on average, and 3 to 4 of the young will survive to develop their flight feathers. The female lays an egg every day and a half, and during this time she lines the nest with down from her breast. She starts the incubation on the day the final egg is laid. After twenty six to thirty days, all the eggs hatch within one day. During incubation, the gander vigorously defends the nest and will attack intruders or try to lure them away. According to Ducks Unlimited Canada, geese are highly communicative. Goslings begin communicating with their parents while they are still in the egg.
