    Hello: My geese are going to hatch sometime today. How long do I leave them in the bator? Then, what is the heat that the brooder needs to be and how and when do I lower it? Thanks

    Don't know about geese but chicks need about 95 degrees the first week and reduce by 5 each week until they are feathered and ready to go out. Hope this helps.
