    So we are about a week and a half or two weeks into our first attempt at old school hatching methods.

    We will update as results become available.

    I love the old fashoined way, well actually that's the only way I've done it so far as I don't have an incubator!!

    Good luck on your clutch.

    In my humble opinion, this is the best way. If all works as mother nature has intended, your goslings will be healthy and robust.

    I'm raising 5 chicks right now in the brooder and really wish I had a broody hen doing the job.

    Best wishes and enjoy the process!

    So far we are enjoying the experience.

    We are hoping she is successful, and comes off the nest with some goslings.

    Sooooo cute ! I have had sooo many poor hatches (doesn't seem to mater what I do ). I now have shipped eggs and a couple non shipped eggs under my little rose comb and I don't think i will incubate again.
    Anyone want a new incubator ?
