    So many incubator threads!!!! Wow - I am NOT going to walk those baby geese again! Let momma do that! So momma goose (yes, I know we have a goose section - not going there) raised a small flock last year in warmer weather. have about 6 o 7 eggs now that shegets up from, walks around, and doesn't keep warm.

    Do I take several eggs that have been exposed to severl days cold weather, or just leave them? I'm thinking take like 4, leave her to lay some more and hope in the meantime we get warmer weather so she can take these bachelorette jaunts away from her eggs without too much damage.

    I'm not certain how cold your temperatures are, but if you are concerned that the eggs may not be viable you can mark the old eggs, remove any others as they are laid and then return them to her when she starts setting. Discard the old eggs at that point.
