Broody Goose

One of the geese has gone broody and decided to start sitting on a clutch of eggs. I removed the old dirty eggs she was sitting on as they had been there for some time and I didn't know if they had been spoiled with the heat and the other geese periodically sitting on them but giving up and wondering off.  I put 12 fresh eggs under her, she was quite cooperative with me swapping out her eggs but fiercely hissed the whole time! I got a good pic of her waving her teeth and tongue about mid hiss!
