    i had 4 canada goose eggs in My still air little giant . The eggs were growing and doing fine . I moved the eggs to my sportsman and now 3 of the eggs have died !![​IMG]. Was it caused by the switching of the incubators or do you think it was just the eggs themselves . I didnt spray the eggs when they were in the little giant but i didn once i put them in the sportsman .

    I know every one says that little giants suck but Nock on Wood i have had great luck with mine

    Not sure it could have just been the eggs. I had some call ducks do that too. They do great and then on day 14 or so they stopped. Hope the 1 egg hatches for you.

    They could have died before from the still air. Without circulation they may have suffocated due to too much CO2 in the bator. I didn't know you could do canadian geese legally, aren't they wild, that's cool. Good luck with your last chicky.
