    I need some info on hatching geese eggs so far I have done ok with everything else. I have a large Dickey cabinet incubator but the racks I use for other eggs are oh course to small, just curious what others do with theirs. It is hard for me to manually turn them. Mine are laying like crazy now and I really want to hatch some of her babies. I need all the pointers I can get.
    Thanks again

    what kind of geese are you hatching? I hatched some sebastopol eggs out last year, but unfortunately the first that hatched out died 4 weeks later thanks to my father-in-law's dog and the second that hatched out died the same night because it flipped on its back. Broke my heart! I also hatched out some silkie chickens at the same time he he.
    I don't know what to tell you about your incubator as I used a gentle giant last year and just got an r-com 20 for xmas. I can't wait to try again this year!!! Good luck!
