Hopefully @jchny2000    or @psue    or @Iain Utah  will have advise on a good incubator for hatching geese.

I hatched several my first year in an LG styro bator.

Important, keep the eggs on their sides, I had very low hatch rates hatching upright. I had one without a turner, and hand turned my eggs. Also keep your humidity at 50% during incubation, and up it at hatch to around 70% at lockdown. I wait  out a few extra days after hatch date f the eggs dont have odor.

We raise a lot of different poultry from Quail to Peafowl, I have excellent hatches with my GQF 1502 digital cabinet incubators. It was an excellent investment for us, we raise most of our food here, on the farm. Also process everything from Quail to cows at home, lol.

my first year was an LG, I've only hand turned goose eggs on their sides.  My current incubator was hand built and designed by my late husband so I'm of no help on commercially produced incubators.
