    Depends on your incubator and how much air flow it gets. There is a very good post on humidity and air flow, I believe it is on the Incubating and Hatching board.

    Hi!
    From what I've read (I have goose eggs coming soon as well!!) it should be at 65% until the last 3 days, and then I think 85%. There is a very good thread on it somewhere, and I have this thread bookmarked on my computer at home. When I get home I will post the link.
