    I'm on day 25 of incubating a goose egg. I had seen a air sac last week. Now I don't. I see lots of movement but no distinct air sac. I use a humidity dial. Not digital. Tried to keep it at 50-55 humidity most of the time. It spiked up three days ago and I had to take water out. Does this mean the baby goose is going to drown? I was going to raise humidity Friday. What do I do? I also have been tilting the egg pointed side down... Spraying daily and turning often. 99.5% temp. Help please?!

    I just looked again and there is a very small air sac. I only have my phone and i can't get a good pict. Is it ok that it's so small. Maybe taking up only 3 percent of the egg?

    I say day 25 but the goose sat on it from March 17-21st. Then I incubated on 21st. That day I had candled it and saw nothing... Thinking it wasn't fertile. But it was. So do I start counting from the 21st and not the 17th? Thank you.
