    How long does it usually take to hatch goose eggs, and is there anything special you need to do for them?

    28+ days depending on the particular strain, I guess there is a bit of variation and have heard of a span of up to 35 days being normal. Goose eggs also require higher humidity.

    Higher humidity for 25 days (60%)
    last 3 days (75 - 80%)

    Assuming they are a 28 day species. Much like hatching ducks.
