I had geese 15 years ago but never kept track of their hatch cause they did all the work, i just got geese again and have been reading up on them.

I found that it takes 29 to 31 days for most geese.

What breed of goose eggs did you get?

On average it takes around 32-34 days. It can take up to 48 hours after pipping for them to fully hatch. Mine all hatched this year by day 34.

Keep an eye on the air cell and make sure they don't dehydrate too little or too much prior to hatch. What breed of geese are you hatching?

Hey thanks for the replies everyone but I have a question. So far I have gotten the replies 29-31, and 32-34 days. How am I supposed to know when lockdown is? (the last 3 days)

ETA: They are White chinese goose eggs I bought at a flea market.

I'm incubating eggs right now and I've been told/have read that you stop turning on day 26, but continue to cool/mist until you see the first pip, then it is actual lockdown.
