It's been a difficult year so far. We had two geese sitting on eggs, and we suspected only one of them would successfully hatch out. One was inside the coop, the other outside. Naturally, the one outside was the only one to actually hatch the eggs. She braved the elements, and most importantly, the coons... One night the geese all refused to go inside, and we knew they were finally hatching. By the next evening, none of the goslings survived.
