    I have a pair of Sebastopol geese and a while back she layed eggs (there's five eggs.) I have a little playhouse/shed in their run, and she has the nest inside in a corner. She's been laying on them almost constantly, only comes out once in a while and only for short periods of time. It's been a while, and I'm starting to wonder if they're ever going to hatch. I've heard that incubation is about 30 days and we're either very close to or past that point, so I'm a little concerned. Any insight?

    Just because she laid them doesn't mean she incubated them 30 days ago. She probably waited to incubate until she laid her last one! Be patient!
    It could be 45 days or a little more from the first egg laid before they hatch.

    GOOD LUCK!
