    I have one of six Sebbie eggs remaining that is on day 27. I stopped turning yesterday, and ramped up my humidity. I have read conflicting things when it comes to geese. Should I still mist the eggs everyday with a cooling period until I get a pip, or not? How much longer is it from pip to hatch as compared to a chicken egg? Sorry, I'm just so nervous! I candled yesterday and the little guy/girl is still alive, I just don't want to get my hopes up! Thanks!

    I just had my first year of gees chicks hatch, I didn't mist them at all I had them in an automatic tempature incubator, I never did any misting, and they hatched just fine.
