    You can hand turn goose eggs, and they will hatch.

    Good timing J!
    Marie and Josephine are both laying now. I'll get my bator fired up this week and check everything out. I don't expect to set anything until the second week of March. Kim is right... it's too cold and they grow too fast. I prefer them to be outside (in the shed) as soon as they get their feet under them and are eating good.
    I try to have mine on grass by the time they are a week old.

    Was gone for 3 days and coming home yesterday finding a sneaky nest of three eggs which my brown african was sitting on to lay the 3rd egg :)
    So yesterday I splited up my breeding Africans and put them in the breeding grounds!
    They aren't sad at all and Sloppy Joe finally is mating successfully :D

    (Buff African egg on the left and Brown african egg on the right)
    Found out that my buff african female layed an egg today last year she started to lay in April! I could be incubating my eggs within 12 days with my brown african laying and my buff african :D
