    I have an RCom 20 incubater. I have been incubating since last week. I candled this evening, and out of 9, only 3 look like they are developing.
    I do not have a hatcher.
    Is it possible to put more eggs in the incubater at this point? I know I need to raise humidity at a certain point, and that's my main concern. Any info is much apprwciated. Thank You!

    I don't have the link but if you look up goose egg hatching guide on the search bar it should tell you about the humidity.

    Any info guys???

    First... some eggs won't show growth until day 7-10. I'm not familiar with your incubator. The increase needed at hatch shouldn't be an issue for the remaining eggs but you also can't turn the newer eggs during hatch time. Please keep in mind that hatching for geese maybe take a couple days.

    Good luck with your choice.

    I suggest you hop over and join us on the 2016 Hatching thread.

    Thank you. I will come over to that thread. I was looking for it when I posted this, and wasn't able to find it for some reason. Last question, please. Will the inability to turn the new eggs cauae deformity or any other problems? I wish I had another bator, or knew someone who did. )-; thanks

    The gosling can stick to one side of the membrane/shell and won't be able to turn when it's time to zip

    And opening lid in lockdown won't hurt hatching?

    don't open once they ext. pip ( once there is a crack in the shell you risk shrink wrapping) not turning the others for that day shouldn't be a problem
