    I have goose eggs that won't fit in my chicken egg tray. After my chicken hatching, can I put the goose eggs in the bottom of the incubator without the tray? If so, how do I lay them and turn them? Can they go on their side or do you have to put them in like your chicken eggs? I would appreciate any advice.....

    I always put them on their sides - a large X on one side and an O on the other. I would turn them manually 2 or 3 times daily. Worked for me - but I will admit that it was ages ago.
