    I went to a farm today to pick up a dog and the woman (I know her sister) asked if I would be interested in hatching goose eggs for her. I am finding it hard to weed through the info here-can anyone tell me anything about hatching geese? I know the hatch rates are usually lower than for chickens, but need to know temp., humidity, how many days, ect.
    Thanks! [​IMG]
