    My dad gave me 6 goose eggs. I put them in the bator this morning. I have them in a LG 9200 with a fan. I want to make sure i have this right. Temp is holding steady.

    Temp- 99.5
    Humidity-65% for the first 25 days
    Humidity- 85% day 26 to hatch
    Day 1 to 4- only turn
    Day 5 to 25- cool down for 15 min. and mist
    Day 26 to hatch-mist untill they pip.
    Turn 3 times a day.

    If one pips do i mist the others till they pip also or leave them alone. Also when they say mist is it just a light mist. And would a cool down be best if is done at the same time every day.

    Bumping so someone who has hatched geese can answer your question.

    Good luck.

    I would say your information on everything looks ideal. I would mist until they are all pipped. (I used a clean washcloth dampened with warm water and just rubbed it over mine.) A cool down at the same time everyday would make it all simpler to keep on schedule, at least it is for me.
    Good luck!
