    Must be hatching time at our place. Have at least one new baby under my first broody goose, and another broody seems to be hatching babies this morning, too. Should be a fun week!

    My hatch is all done! 7 of my 8 eggs hatched and I’m completely smitten with them! Here’s a photo of the first one out.

    Last month, I set two sets of eggs in my bator 5 days apart. My bator had a temp swing and killed all but one egg from 2nd set in the first week. I forgot about the solo egg after my trio hatched over the weekend. Yesterday, I heard a peep from my bator and much to my surprise the solo egg had externally pipped. I raced to set up hatcher and get solo egg moved, fearing shrink wrap (I incubate my geese eggs in dry bator). I'll be darned if the solo baby didn't hatch by itself overnight and while very sticky, appears healthy. So now I have 4 buff dewlap babies which brings my dewlap flock to 20. Yay!

    First day out of the secure night pen. Final count 16 plus 2 finished in the incubator. 6 eggs they gave up on at the end are in the incubator. One goose went broody about 20 days after the first one so my thought is that they may still have a week to go. All developing. IMG_20190425_123055.jpg
    Enjoying their first bit of hay.
