    My bator came today-- it's upstairs in my workroom, heating up [​IMG].

    I also had some eggs arrive (GOOSE!) So they're sitting in a nice dark spot, waiting for the right moment to enter the warmth that awaits them. (Probably tomorrow morning, I'm thinking, since the incubator was plugged in initially at about 1:30 this afternoon... I want to make sure I know as much as possible about my incubator before I put these little (er... not so little!) eggs in.)

    I'm not expecting great results. I'd be happy with one hatching.

    I have a second incubator coming that's going to be my 'hatcher'-- my egg turner is also on its way... I just don't know exactly how old these goose eggs are, so I don't want to wait too long.

    This is what I get for doing this when I don't own any fowl of my own![​IMG]

    Congrats! Make sure to get tamp and humidity stablized before you put the eggs in. Then after you put them in, don't touch the temp knob for a full 24 hrs so that it can re stablize. Good luck!
