I didn't have very good luck with my welsh harlequins. Two out of sixteen hatched. Any and all advice is appreciated. Oh I am using a still air incubator if that makes a difference. Thanks.
With my incubator I actually never know what the humidity is (I only fill the water trays and refill them at day 28.
With temperature mine is always at 37.5 degree Celsius if that helps?
In fact it's always 37 degrees Celsius for goose eggs.
I get 90-95%hatch rate every year and keep trying to get 100% but maybe this year is the year!
Goose eggs are a little harder then duck eggs.
You need to wet goose eggs and I find that the more you turn the eggs the better hatch rate.
You can cool the eggs if you want but I don't do that.
I've an still air bator too.
Anything else you need to know?
