    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

    I will be able to breathe again when # 5 decides to join its hatchmates.
