    Do you think I can use a chicken egg turner for geese eggs if I just seperate them? How much does an egg have to be turned15% 30% ?

    i don't have experience with goose eggs. but last year i put duck eggs in it and it worked out just fine. i had to separate a few of them cuz some were kinda big. but goose eggs, i don't know, i'd be afraid they may perhaps fall out or something? good question though.

    Goose eggs will do best laid on their side and turned a full half turn three or more times a day. There is a goose egg arangement for the yellow Hovabator turner that spaces out the turning rails and has hardware cloth baskets to hold the eggs. This is something a handy person could duplicate quite easily. I would still mark the eggs with an X and an O and give them a half turn once a day as the turner just rocks them back and forth.
