    Okay, I've been trying to hatch geese for the past month. They start to develop just great, get along to about day 25, then they all die. I had one about day 30, and I can't see movement in it anymore either. Is the humidity too low? Are they not strong enough because I forget to turn three times a day? I read somewhere on here that goose eggs need to cool off for a few minutes every day to hatch right, but even though I've done a search I haven't found any specific guidelines for geese, and I have several people who want to buys some--if I ever manage to hatch any! I can hardly believe the goose is still laying, it's been two months now. [​IMG]

    I'd love suggestions!

    Hey Heather! I just created a goose hatching info page in my BYC pages that is going into the sticky section. Check it out, and I hope it helps!
