    I knew it! One of them decided to join the world while I was gone... The rest are working hard, nearly all have pips. :D

    QUESTION:
    The first egg to pip had a white membrane on it. Now it's turning yellowish. Is that a problem?

    Who says african goose eggs are hard to hatch is wrong ! Coz they are easy but very slow coming out eggs and i stated using da incubater 5 years ago and every single gosling i got were all females except once i got 2 males but yea maybe i just collect female eggs?!
