    I panicked came home Sunday night baby goose had internally piped.. Monday night still no external pip Tues afternoon still nothing so I was afraid it was gonna b stuck inside or suffocate and die. So I assisted and broke it free very carefully. I had read Mr Pete's thread on assisting and it has just been laying there it has almost absorbed all the yolk wit do I do I'm worried about the lil baby if its OK or not:barnie

    The problem with helping poultry hatch from eggs before they have fully involuted the yolk sac is that you can be introducing bacteria into their abdominal cavity. I have interfered many times in hatching various poultry, sometimes successfully and sometimes not. Sometimes they are slow to hatch because they are weak or their eggs are just not of good quality. Geese can be very slow to hatch. Make sure this gosling's navel is completely closed before you remove it from the egg. Be patient, this can seem like it takes quite a while, especially when you're watching closely. I have hatched weak goslings before and sometimes it may take a full day for them to get on their feet. Slower than chickens. If it seems that all is sealed up well and it can come out of the egg placing it in a homemade "nest", usually an appropriate sized bowl lined with a washcloth or two, and kept still at almost incubator temp (90degrees) will help to get its feet under it. Don't worry to much if it is not eating or drinking a whole lot the first couple of days. Good luck, I hope the little guy or gal makes it.

    Your doing everything right just make sure you keep it warm when you take it out of the incubator and you'll be good from there:)
