I've lost a total of 6 goslings this year so far which is unusual to lose that many from nest hatching for me. I hate it but the weather has been so chilly here at night the past few days I'm thinking momma is letting them get too cold before I can get to them in the mornings. It always seems they hatch in the middle of the night for us. I had one pipped yesterday so I checked the nest 3 times through the night last night because I was bound and determined to not let another one die. He was all the way hatched at 5 a.m. so I promptly got him to the brooder with his sister. I'm watching another one now who will hopefully be hatched by dark tonight. Luckily I'm on vacation the rest of the week so, if not I'll be checking this little one all night long too until it hatches.
