    Ok i just got some goose eggs and i am wondering if i am supposed to let them sit a while before i put them in the incubator or just put them in now. I am asking because i have read that they should stay out for at least a day before you put them in. So i dont wanna mess up, so any help would be nice!!

    Any shipped eggs, I would rest for at least 8 hrs on the counter in a temp stable place. Fat end up. Tilt them once or twice gently during this rest time. I do this for peafowl, guinea and chicken. Could be different for water fowl....but I doubt it. Hopefully a goose person will answer for you.
