    I wonder why such bad luck?
    Are you getting shipped hatching eggs?

    Quote:I will! The two that are due...I have them at 84% humidity...and I heard tapping from one of the eggs. I wanted to open the bator sooo bad! LOL

    I am on day 28 but I just quickly flashed the light to see them while I added water and they are moving...but no internal pips yet...I can still see some slight veining above the baby...I thought it was supposed to be completely dark at this point...but maybe either I didn't have the heat high enough...although I know most of the time it was between 99.5 and 100....or maybe this is normal.
    They are both moving and no pips yet...waiting is driving me crazy...because nothing is certain at all

    Ohhhh...thats probably why. [​IMG]
    Sorry.
    Do you have a reputable source or
    are you getting them from an unknown on eggbid or something?
    To me waterfowl hatching eggs, no matter where you get them, from are such a big gamble.
    I always feel live goslings are the way to go.
    At least they have a much higher rate of survivial.
