    The goose egg is due to hatch 11/2 and has already internally pipped. What do I do?

    Hi. Don't worry is the first thing to do. This egg may take another day to externally pip then another 36 to 48 hours to start rotation and hatch. Please see the sticky in the Goose Section for more detailed information which includes egg position and humidity control.

    All sounds ok but how did you confirm internal pipping?

    I was candling them and I seen it so I listened to it was clicking (breathing). No worries....this is my first goose hatch! Baby momma hatching them isn't working so we are doing it for her.
