    I checked my goose egg, to take it out of the turner and raise up the humidity for hatching and I candled it one last time and it is through the air sac and pecking at the shell. I cant wait for it to pip. It is on day 26. It is a Toulouse egg. How long will it be till it pips through the shell?



    EDITED TO SAY: 5-12-08 at 4:23pm it hatched.

    Congrats. [​IMG]

    I don't know about geese, but I know that it can take ducks 24 - 48 hours, at least that is what I have been told. My ducks didn't take that long.

    Thank you. I am sooo excited. I think I read it can take up to 1-2 days for the gosling to be completley out of the shell. Hopefuly before I got to bed there is a pip. [​IMG]
