    Quote:Goose eggs need to be kept at 37.4-37.6 degrees celsius. Humidity at around 55-60% then the last 3 days raise it to 75%

    I have hatched everything from turkeys to ducks, quail, pheasants etc... In my sportsman I just rotate the eggs down to the hatching tray and up the humidity for the hatch and then when done. I lower it back down. Mine stays around 47-54% then during hatch time I raise it to 74%. So far I've had great hatches and several 100% ones.
