    With my gosling? If so then no the first one had died smushed and her insides went outside and the one hatching now is not looking to good if you really want I can send a PM picture of the second one to whoever, it's just a little gross

    Why haven't you taken the egg out? you can help it by keeping it warm wrapping in a warm wet rung out wash cloth .

    I think that these eggs hatching are brown Chinese and smaller lighter breed and she is smushing them easier than her own super African eggs

    My two African eggs on lockdown are finished with one white gosling and one grey I should of helped, it had not gotten turned around and had its head in a position where it couldn't pip the membrane and the internal pip I thought I saw was its leg in the air cell so my tiny safe hole I put in the super thick shell didn't help, it was ready to hatch and couldn't =( it's poor little head was swollen, probably from being stuck at the wrong end.

    Well I guess I should get them but my incubator is not the best and if they do hatch in the incubator hatched them she would still crush them
