    So I am expecting 3 African Goose (dewlap) eggs from Corancher...now, how do I go about incubating them? I have 7 Sebbie eggs in one 'bator now & 8 bbs orps in another...so one is running about 65% humidity, the other about 40%. I am planning on transfering the newer sebbies in with the chickens and bumping the chicken's humidity to around 65% for their hatch. Then, bumping up the two sebbies that are due later this week to 80-85%...is this right? If so, then should I put my africans in with the newer sebbies & BBS orps?

    Also, do they require misting & cooling daily, like the sebbies?
