    Well I am a bit more encouraged after a successful hatch. I have my R-Com filled with 9 sebastopol geese eggs

    and my genesis filled with 18 eggs a mixture of Old English, Silkies and Naked Neck X eggs (thanks Karen) and Some one gave me locally 5 RR eggs.

    I can't wait!!! Yippeeee!

    UPDATE: Well 6/9 made it thus far. 1 had a broken air sac for sure and 2 just didn't do anything so they got tossed a week ago. The egg turner was stopped today and taken out. I just can't hardly wait now! I should have little goslings right before Easter with any luck. I am thinking Thursday or Friday. From people I have bought my eggs from and from past hatches they have hatched out around day 28.

    Good luck with your hatch.[​IMG]
    Is it the r-com 20? If so, what do you think of it? Does it have good hatch rates. I'm thinking of buying it.

    I love my r-com 20! The only thing I am noticing is the stinking humidity sponge dries out so quickly. I had to order another sponge, but was wondering if there is a way to make your own? Any other rcom owners out there do that

    My last hatch rate was 50% for shipped eggs. I do not have my own eggs to compare. But it seems to hold temp and humidity very VERY well!

    hey tebs, i've noticed the same thing about my r-com sponge too.
    but other than that i love my r-com too! i agree that it keeps temp and humidity at very nice even levels!
    mine is full of serama eggs (again) at the moment . . .

    good luck with those eggs and especially the goose eggs. i saw some BEAUTIFUL geese at a show last weekend and now i want some really bad. guess i'm gonna have to buy a farm now! [​IMG]
    can't wait to see gosling pics!

    thanks!!! Yeah I begged my husband for it for xmas. He was a bit perturbed because he had wanted to surprise me by "coming up with it on his own" because he knew I had been eyeing them. Well I am terrible at surprises, lol.

    I tell you what, I have ordered probably 20 sebastopol goose eggs (yikes or more!) and I am hoping to get 10ish out of it with different blood lines. If I have a TOO successful hatch rate, I might be selling some baby goslings because I can't handle too many on the ranch.

    glad to hear you found some sebbies! mine as of this moment are not laying. The only things laying are my chickens, and I have an incredibly broody hen that will NEVER get off the eggs... also I get the occasional duck egg every now and then. It's too cold for them to lay. That's why I can't wait til spring when they're laying like MANIACS!!!!
    Muahahahahaha
    *Cough*
    Spring fever. Lol. [​IMG]

    Love the little skunk stripe. I have no idea what kind all of these are. I just know that two are Old English, 3 or silkies and 2 are brand X as I were told they were RIR's from a gal locally.
