Hi all. I hope someone who has hatched goslings can help.. I have 2 that pipped this morning. I helped the first one out this afternoon because the membrane was so thick even I had a hard time getting it off. Not dry, but super thick and rubbery. Now I am wondering if it is just that way for geese. She's OK, but I think it was a little too soon. So the second one, who pipped at the small end (!) maybe I'll name her Wrongway, I just wrapped in a very wet paper towel and left her in the bator. She is fine, beak out, breathing, peeping, but absolutely no progress since I first noticed the pip 12 hours ago. Should I help her out or wait...how long? I will be up all night with them anyway. And I have B&B guests to feed breakfast to! The zombie cook.
