Put them in the incubator and let them come up to temp... The smell makes an appearance rather quickly...  Anyhow, there are still a few eggs of hers out in the coop where she has a nest arranged.  Only time will tell.  I'm told by the spousal unit that this weekend we're collecting ALL the eggs, candling and then putting only viable eggs in the incubator.  i guess that means she's not impressed with the natural egg hatching method.  :-)

Hmm, maybe your gander has some fertility problems. I hope the other eggs fare better!

I am unsure the breed of my geese a friend had to get rid of them and we took them in.  They do well with y chickens and ducks.  A few months ago we snagged her eggs * of them and incubated them none of them hatched in the mean time they were in the incubator she layed 4 more eggs and noticed she was sitting and not coming out to graze much  I free range all my birds from dusk till dawn.  Last week I bought 4 ducks and brought them home hoping my boyfriend didn't get upset but I had had Indian runner duck and it was my favorite but the neighbors cat killed it.  I have been searching for Indian Runners.  Anyways Saturday at 1 he comes inside and says to me what did you do buy more ducks.  Then hes like their out in the yard.  Then all of a sudden I jump up and yell its Saturday The baby geese hatched.  Just wanted to share the pictures In the beginning I didn't want geese and we decided we are gonna keep 2 more geese and let y litte sister have the other 2.  She has a big pond by her house and they are making a wildlife habit so her ducks and geese can stay in the pond and have safe barriers to hide.
