Candling eggs???????

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So I was finally able to candle my goose eggs. She has been on them for over a week, there are 21 eggs under her at this time. So as I was candling them I found two that were totally black inside, what does that mean??? I found one that was 100% fertile and then the rest looked unfertilized where you can only see the yolk. I took 1/2 the eggs out and put the one that I know is fertile near the center so it will be safer. (hopefully!!!!!!!!) I hope I have not make a mistake disturbing her at all... :-(

The black you see is the baby! Now geese eggs take longer than chickens, but id say shes been on them for more than a week or two, you might have bbies within the next 1-2 weeks! (Sorry no idea how long geese eggs take to hatch XD)
