I didn't know you had shipped eggs? No wonder the aircells moved
But yes I agree with Carrosaur you must have been doing something wrong but then the moving air cells can be the cause :L
Well my hatch was a complete flop. My goose was sitting on 4 eggs (2 fertile, 2 not) faithfully. They were supposed to hatch while I was on spring break (I was disappointed that the farm sitter would get to see them first). When we got back she was only sitting on the 2 infertile eggs. I have no idea what happened to the other 2 and I've never had eggs go missing before. No dead goslings anywhere to be found. Such a mystery. My goose is a pilgrim, will she start laying again and try to hatch another clutch or is she done?
I have 9 eggs in the nest now. I am sure the American Buff and the Italian/Skåke mix are laying eggs, but they are using the same nest. How does that work? The Toulouse might be laying, but I have not seen her do it yet. Anyways, I am planning of removing a few and try my hand at hatching them. I have done quail, chicken, duck and turkey before. My question is, will these geese accept the ones I hatch?
I'm Elise, Dutch, living in France. I have chickens and quails, until the neighbours from the next village gave me some of their goose eggs to make a nice giant omelette.
But no, I set the 6 eggs 5 weeks ago in the incubator, 4 were infertile but the other 2 were ok and hatched last Monday / Tuesday. They are just wonderful! I walked them yesterday and they followed me everywhere. What a joy!
@eliseswart They are so adorable. Goslings are so trusting of their mamas. Yep your Mother goose.
