I'm only asking because I plan on spraying my Sebastopol goose eggs starting tomorrow. Last time I hatched goslings I didn't spray and they were all fine but I did have to assist 2 of the 3 goslings to hatch and I wonder if spraying would have brought them to a healthier weight allowing them to all hatch without assistance.I get a basket and pick out all the 18 I'm spraying and cooling. I spread a towel on the floor and spray them with my distilled water I have in a spray bottle. I do chores till they dry then I put them back in the incubator.
And no I'm not messing with those 12. I want to see if they hatch regardless. I picked 12 because if I did only single digit amount of eggs it could be said that those wouldn't hatch anyways. I wanted to choose a good enough number without taking too many.
