    11 goose eggs went into the incubator, on the 22nd of feb.
    boyfriend managed to drop two whilst turning only a couple of days after they went in - so down to 9
    6 turned out to be infertile - out they came, down to 3

    re-candled 18th march, and 2 appeared to be DIS.
    1 looks good, hasn't lost as much weight as it should have, but pretty close... BUT it hasn't hatched, or even pipped :( - i think i can see a bit of shadowing in the air cell.. but only a tiny bit...

    What have i done wrong :([​IMG]

    [​IMG] Sorry, I'm with you here. I can't help as I've never incubated eggs but I'm in the same boat as you right now. My Lilly's been sitting on eggs for 32 days. 1st day of full sitting Feb. 21st. The one I had a chance to look at yesterday 'looked' good... light weight, thin shelled ... but no pip. No goslings yet. I sincerely hope yours does pip and hatch SOON.
