    I was given a bunch of Chinese Geese eggs. The person dosent eat them , and they can be weeks to months old. Anyway I put as many as I could in my home made incubator.

    I have the temp set at 100, is that right?

    Does anyone know how long, is it the same as chickens 21 days?

    Thanks

    They should have a cooling down period and be sprayed with a water mist once day also.

    Good luck with them. Goose eggs are the hardest eggs to hatch.
