    I ordered goose eggs and had them in the incubator for 7 days. I haven''t got any veins. I'm so disappointed. I let them set the whole day so the air cells would be okay and they would be room temperature. They didn't appear to be too cold when I picked them up. I don't believe they were fertile. Can you open them after they have been in the incubator to see if there is a bullseye. Would you ask for a refund? Thanks!

    I certainly would want a refund! But give a couple more days and candle again just i case you've missed something, I've missed it before and nearly chucked out a perfectly good egg lol

    I’d give them until at least day 10. I really couldn’t see anything in my duck eggs until then(and it was only slight) Goose eggs are even bigger.

    Shipping is hard on eggs. Even fertile ones can get jiggled around enough that they just can't develop. That doesn't mean they weren't fertile when they were shipped.
