I have never done this. I was sent a surprise goose egg with a bunch of mixed breed chicken eggs. The lady said just throw it in and leave it 31 days. I am a nervous wreck because, I see every egg as a possible baby. I hatch every year at school with great success. I set Friday( not ideal, but the mail was delayed due to Valentines) I did not turn on turner bc I hadn't rested as long as I'd have liked. I believe chicken eggs will be ok, but I ignorantly set goose egg big end up. I have now had time to research and realize my error. Do you think I cann lay it on it's side on Monday? I am using a hovabator with fan and the digital temp/humidity displays. I am in Nj and normally have best success with dry incubation. Hoping that will be ok for goose, I will cool and mist weekdaily starting Monday. I have an ancient still air I might try to resurrect for a hatcher, but I hate moving them, ifbthey are doing well where they are! Help!
