    I am on day 28 today, I can feel movement in the egg, is there anything different I need to do to a goose egg than I do with the chicken eggs during hatching? Will it "peep" (in duck language) thru the egg like chicks or not? Will it pip the same? I just want to know what to look for. Also when it hatches, how warm should the brooder be?

    This was not a planned out hatch; my neighbor girl found it in the grass by the river and brought it to me, they said it wasn't in a nest, and she wanted me to try to hatch it for her. I gave it a shot, not expecting anything to come of it, well guess what! Now I have all these question AHHHH!!!

    I would greatly appreciate any info.
    Thanks,
    Michelle

    Haven't done goose eggs but they need higher humidity and as with chicken eggs, hands off! Hope it hatches!
