    Ok, I am absolutely fine with chicken eggs, not a problem, have great hatch rates. Now I am incubating goose eggs for someone else and need a bit of advice. Lots of different info in lots of places. My bator's regular humidity is around 54%-58% with it's one water tray afilled. I add a plastic tray with more at lockdown to get around 70-75%. Is 54%-58% enough for goose eggs? Will be misting and cooling every day anyway. Any dos and don'ts?

    Will be posting up candling pictures etc, as I go as I think I'll be needing plenty of encouragement over the next 30 days!!!
