Iain and psue,
It is nice to know that you have a buddy to sweat bullets with. I'm not too far behind the two of you as mine should hatch around the 4th or 5th of April. psue, I think I will try the skunk idea myself it sounds like a winning idea. I also like the individual box method. That was the way my goose eggs from last year were packed. They shipped all the way from Oregon to Arkansas and almost every one hatched, and that was back when I didn't know what I was doing. I didn't weigh, candle, watch humidity, or anything I am doing this year. The only thing I did was bring up my humidity at the end.
Igotgoosed, it does sound like you have a hot house. Your chicken eggs will hatch fast compared to the goose eggs. A friend of mine told me that she had eggs hatch in her dog house without a hen sitting on them just from the heat of the day, so maybe if it gets warm enough in my goose house they will incubate themselves.
Amy's eggs along with mine go in the bator this evening. I candled them today and they all look great. They are weighed, marked, numbered and ready to go.
Good hatches everyone!
