    I have 4 goose eggs in the bator and it is day 5. I just candled them and see a red blob (an embryo?) inside of an orange blob (the yolk?) inside of a clear blob in 3 of the eggs. The red blob is about the size of a dime. Is this an embryo I am seeing? Can't see any veins...

    This is my first time hatching goose eggs.

    Thanks in advance for your input,
    Mother Goose to be:)

    UPDATE: It is now day 8 and those "blobs" now have veins shooting out all over.... so yes I have 3 embryos!!!!!!!!!!! YEA!!!!!!![​IMG]

    I've never had goose eggs, but on chicken eggs the veins are the first thing you can see. If you can't see any veins I'd say there's no gosling growing.
