This happened about a week ago as well and again today so I'm thinking maybe over heating but it seems weird for it to be off balance, anyway one of them lost its balance and was flapping its wings falling over and calling...

    Geese aggressiveness questions

    Yes I think so too, they sleep with the dogs around but if a dog walks up and sniffs them the geese try to bite, sometimes jumping up really fast trying to get them. This is 2 of them, they are white Chinese cross brown chinese

    Geese aggressiveness questions

    That's the thing, my dogs never ran away from the goslings or around them for that matter and would be lying on the ground and the week old goslings would go out of their way to run up to them and bite them, only then would my dogs run away or walk away while still getting bit. Never seen it...

    The air cell is suppose to be pipped into when they hatch. I'm new at hatching too so I don't know much but maybe the air cell was too small?

    Yes that's why I was worried but I'm not as worried now they have externally pipped! I bought 6 and only one was a late quitter so that's pretty good odds :) will update with more pics when the others hatch

    Chinese goose late egg death

    I found that guide only once my goose eggs have been incubated 25 days, very useful information but I found it too late. I only have a thermometer that does full numbers so I kept it at 37 degrees Celsius and humidity 50% to 55% and sprayed every now and then. I also never weighed the eggs...

    Help! Opened eggs on day 23 and they are still alive!!

    No all the yolk and blood vessels were absorbed. The other chick stopped trying to zip the egg and was trying to push itself through the hole I made and I was worried so I took some egg shell off and it managed to push itself out overnight

    I went to help the second chick and it's dead, it's head wasn't positioned under its wing and was bent funny and swollen, I feel like I could have prevented this if I helped get its head out this morning 😭
