    What do I do? I think there is slight movement on one or two. I don't want to wait too long and have them all be dead. What would YOU DO?

    I'm new to Geese, how long is the incubation period? I had some Quail eggs that were suppost to hatch yesterday, but didn't. I've heard that sometimes if you didn't have your temps right or something it can take alittle longer for them to hatch. I would trying candling them and see if you can see any movement in the eggs.

    Best of luck to you... I wouldn't try to help eggs until after they've pipped. In my opinion, they need at least that much strength and will to live or no amount of helping them out of their shells will do any good. But if you think they won't make it anyway, you can try to pip and zip for them.
