I just read all the articles I could find about incubating geese before I started. Poor Lucy has been unsuccessful for two years now, so I decided to swipe her eggs as she laid them and incubate myself. She starts laying when it is way too cold and the eggs freeze solid.
I have them at 99.5 degrees and turn them 3 times a day, spraying them each time. They are probably similar to duck eggs as to humidity needs and temp. I plan to start letting them cool for 15 minutes once a day starting tonight (day 10). That's what Metzgers recommends. When it comes time for lockdown I will up the humidity and reduce the temp a little and hope for the best. I think there are 9 developing out of 11, but will leave them all in the incubator another week before checking again. I think the first few may have frozen even though the egg wasn't cracked.
