    I have just been given African Geese eggs. The owners incubator could only hold 9 so he gave them to me. He said he has had them under a light for 2 days he rotated them a few times a day. They are in the incubator now at 99.5 degrees. I have no idea what to do I need help bad. I need to know what to feed them?, when will they hatch?, when can they go outside?. I have only raised chickens so this will be a first. I really need help so if anyone can help me please do. For the goslings sake.[​IMG]

    What kind of incubator are you using? If it's one of the styrofoam types, it needs a stand-off ring (you could probably make one) or the tops of the eggs will be too close to the heating element and they'll get too warm. Why did he have them under a light? They could sit out for a week at cool room temp and still do fine...
