    well, i can't help my obsession with sebastopols and i found a lady close to me that has eggs. i've had 23 chick eggs in the bator for almost 2 days now. can i put the goose eggs in the same bator? temps are 99-100 and humidity is 50-55%. i know geese take longer to hatch, but is it ok to hatch the chicks with them? i hope so!!

    I wouldnt do that. Goose eggs need to be around 60% humidity and they need to be cooled every day from day 4 up until they pip the shell. They also need to be sprayed with warm water sometime during that cooling period.

    You can always try, what do you have to loose, I incubated chicken and duck eggs in the same bato and they came out fine just stick them together at the other end and spray once a day.
