    Hello everyone! So my moms friend is giving us a dozen African goose eggs. This will be my first time doing goose eggs but am pretty expireanced doing chicken eggs. After reading what seems to be 1000 threads, I cant find anything on people talking about using the sportsman 1502 for geese.
    I'm not sure ( or confused after all the posts I've read) if they will need to be turned 180 degrees or will the automatic turner the incubator has built in will be enough.
    Also, with chickens I did a dry incubation. I never added water to raise the humidity other than when it came time for lock down. Humidity levels always stayed around 25-40 percent during incubation.
    Also I've read about people spraying the eggs with water and cool down period. Does everyone do this?
    Eggs will be here in the morning and want to be prepared.
    Thanks in advance!!!
