    Okay got my eggs today. Do I save them?
    or let them their in nest and wait for a broody.
    Or what do you suggest?
    I don't have a broody chicken yet so that will not work.
    And how many days can I keep the eggs ?
    Sorry this is first yr. for my geese so I need some experienced advice
    Thanks in advance

    What do you actually mean by saving them ?! Incubator?! And you could leave them in the nest if you like but if you bring them inside it will also do and wait till you have about 7 eggs and then put in the nest so she will go broody and eggs can stay about 9-12 days without warmth for the gosling to develop .
    Hope it helped a bit .
