    Hi, I am no expert but I also have goose eggs in my incubator. Everything I have read says to stop turning the last 3 days. For humidity I think the main consensus is anywhere from 60's up to 75 percent. Good luck and I look forward to hearing how it goes.

    I have 3 Sebastopol Goose and only 1 Toulose. I bought my daughter 4 Toulose but only one made it this far. Do you think being on day 26 they have a good chance of making it? All four had movement today. Also do you know where I can get any more Toulose or Emdem gesse eggs? I would love to get more Sebasgtopol but they are soo much money.

    Quote:They should have a good chance of making it. Stop turning today and up the humidity to 75% for the hatch.

    Good Luck

    I'm on day 26 too! Only one of my Sebastopol eggs out of six made it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
