After a long incubation period and one hatch destroyed due to not waiting long enough, sometimes 26 days isnt enough for geese. I have my first successfull hatch of duck and geese. I am thrilled to say the least, Miss Prissy helped me through the nerve wracking temp spikes, humidity nightmares,Her patience is totally amazing ! Thank You Miss Prissy. Here are the results of a first successfull hatching. 2 out of 3 Sabastopol Eggs hatched 5 out of 8 Muscovies (one is still procrastinating coming out of his/her shell) I will be able to breathe again when # 5 decides to join its hatchmates.
