So I took chance in April and got ten goose eggs to incubate. Seven out of ten hatched but only six survived. With all the precautions with geese I figured chicken eggs would be a breeze... now I know there is just as many protocols with chickens as there is geese. What started with nine eggs soon dwindled to six due to various problems experienced during the incubation period. Now the great day approached, day 21. A day of excitement, sadness, joy, and confusion. So the day came and went with just a few signs of life in three eggs. Day 22, definite internal pips, day 23, external pips! Finally on day 24 the first baby emerges, sometime later that night baby number two squirms out. And last but certainly not least baby number three squealed it's way to the outside! Now me and my sister are the proud parents of The Three Amigos. Only one more egg is left, because last minute the others quit on us, and last time we candled, it was still alive fingers crossed all goes well!
