    I did a search and couldn't find anything. Could someone please give me any advise on incubating duck and goose eggs together? I have the chance to get a mixed lot of duck and goose eggs and have never incubated either.

    You can incubate them together and there is no reason not to. The management is identical. The only issue you'll find is getting your goose eggs to fit in the incubator. You'll probably have to lay them flat them turn them by hand.

    i always incubate ducks,geese and chickens together in my sportsman i just lay the geese eggs on their side on the top tray with the large plastic ones,cause if you put them in the middle or bottom they will break as there is not enough room
