    You don't want them to hatch early. Early hatches mean the temp was too high, they matured too fast and will probably have some issue as some point. Better they are a day late. I have never had an early egg hatch on goslings. Always late.

    They should start hatching day 28 and it could take another day or two for them to get out. [​IMG]
