    yes and no......... you can incubate in them but your total numbers you can set are very limited. We use two of them as NICU bators for goose eggs who need extra care.

    Thanks I have 2 pairs of geese sebs and cotton patch. I'd like the goose to hatch out a batch and then I was going to put some in the incubator it says 9/12 eggs is that true?

    9 to 12 sounds about right. I can only fit about 12 in a genesis because of how they have to lay.

    9 .......three rows of three is what I have fit before. First year girls lay smaller eggs so sometimes you can get another.
