    I have a bator w 3 trays. I had placed 22 chicken eggs when I came across 24 more eggs. So I placed them in the bator. Then a parent gave me some goose eggs (which I also placed in the bator). The first set of eggs have hatched (unfortunatly 5 eggs didn't make it). I candled the second set of chicken eggs and I see them making progress. However, I can't see veins in the goose eggs. I can see the yolks but I can't see veins. I am using a mini meg light. This is my first time trying goose eggs and I am really hoping the eggs are good and are making progress.

    I would appreciate advice!

    Don't throw them out yet. Try again on day 10. I don't throw anything out until about day 15 unless I think it might explode in the 'bator.

    geese eggs are like chicken eggs. you shoul dbe able to see something inside if they are good. you can give a little more time just in case but i did goose eggs last year and normally 24 to 48 hours in the bator you can tell if they are good or not.

    I would wait, I wait on chicken eggs I would defently wait on goose scince they take 30 days I think instead of 21 maybe just a slow starter.
