Just wanted to share the joyous news. I had 9 eggs, 8 were fertile, 4 have hatched and 4 are pipped. Here is a photo of two of them. Last year I was using a styrofoam incubator and had a terrible time, very low hatch rates. This year I have a better bator and am keeping it closed! Here is a video of the first to hatch: They have pilgrim dads and mothers are either embden or african mix. I am not breeding them pure, I am breeding them to be a good strong goose that thrives.
