American goose egg day 31

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a american buff goose egg on day 31 and there is still no internal pip. I really dont wanna have to help but its the only one that made it to lock down. Any ideas on what to look for so i dont end up assisting to soon? There is a small shadow along the high side of the air cell and a little movment. I have read the forum posts about the subjects of assisting but since they are usually talking about chickens i just thought i would see if anybody could give me any advice. Thanks

I've no experience with hatching geese, but until someone comes along that does, here's a very good waterfowl hatching guide:

Firstly candle it. If you see movement it's obviously still alive but goslings should really be hatching at day 31.
Don't forget that they can also pip at the opposite end (the pointy end).
If it hasn't internal piped then there isn't much you can do but wait sad.png
Fingers crossed
