I got tired of looking at the four eggs in the nest house, so I took em out, since the geese havn't layed in almost a week,

how long do goose eggs take to hatch??

are the temp and humidity the same as ducks??


what else do i need to know?

you are very welcome !


sry forgot to tell you , it helps to take the tray if you have them in a turner , take out starting on day 4 or 5 mist them with a lil warm warter and let cool for about 15 mins on your counter or wherever.

Hope that helps and Happy Hatching !

The incubation time for geese is more around 28 to 33 days, usually 30.
