    I'm in -- was just looking at an incubator the other day....
    I want to hatch geese - any recommendations for easy kits?
    I just moved to the country but have raised geese and chickens before. Links to reviews would be cool.

    I like to recommend the Genesis 1588 for starting out. The kit comes with most of what you need--a very good thermometer is a must, like the brinsea spot check.

    Welcome!

    It is very fun! Great way to start BYC too.

    Please post pictures of the hatch!

    Welcome!

    I have added all four of you to the members list.

    I won't be hatching in this hatch along, maybe if there is a St. Patrick's Day HAL I will. I will follow along for tips and stuff. I had an excellent time in the Halloween HAL.

    If the weather is bad I may do that one. I'll be hatching my prize eggs from @TJChickens so it depends on if his girls are laying and if the weather is nice enough that they don't freeze in transit. I also discovered that there are silkie feathered Ameraucanas and I'm saving my pennies to get a dozen of those.
