    Oh my goodness I am a ball of nerves. This is my first time to incubate eggs and the first batch for my Brower top hatch. Temps and humidity are all holding steady. I think I have checked on them a hundred times already. I am so worried I will mess it up.

    I set 11 goose eggs 19 days ago. This is so nerve racking. I candel them every 5 days, turn them 3 or 5 times a day mist them once a day let them cool for 15 min. once a day.I have read most everything on the internet regarding hatch Goose eggs, I think I turned this into a part time job. I can hardly wait. I ordered mine though the mail I hope they make it.

    It's nice to know I am not alone. This is going to be a long month.

    They take 28 days, remove them from the turner on day 25. They are slow to pip,zip and hatch. Good luck to you.
