    If no egg sack then it must be ready to hatch. leave it under mom unless you have a bator to put them in. But I have to say if mom opened and they are no ready veins etc they may not make it. Why didn't ya'll candle, much easier way for finding out whats going on with out risking losing any lives. It is all the way out of the shell?

    I think ours should start moving and shaking soon. Mama goose is not letting me anywhere near her, so I have been unable to candle our eggs. I think she has 8 or 9 eggs - really difficult to tell. When I try to go near the area she is in the gander takes off after me! Not worth getting attacked by him, so I will just wait and see what happens!
