    Hi Goose buddies, would appreciate some advice on recommended incubators, please keep in mind that this is from the UK. The situation is that we have a Brinsea Octagon 20 which served us well last year, the challenge is that it can only cope with 9 goose eggs at a time. Well just lately our little ladies are going potty laying loads of eggs but are not staying on the nest. I currently have 22 eggs warming up in the house. 7 hens , all but one first timers. They have 8 duds in their nest, in the shed, which unfortunatly they are all sharing.

    Whilst I do not want to go mad, until we can get them to sit on the nest, we want to give their eggs the best chance hence this request.

    Look forward to your feedback Paul T

    Have tried PM to Pete55 but he appears off air at this time.

    I believe Brinsea makes a hatcher that is only available in the UK. It looks like it would work really well.
