    Artificially incubating goose eggs can be tough. I don't know the exact humidity needed but its higher than that of chickens. When I was is incubating I sprayed the eggs a couple times a day with a plant mister in addition to keeping the water well filled (a light mist - don't soak them). Turn them at least three times a day and in 28 days or so you should have some babies!
