Incubating geese question?
« on: May 29, 2012, 07:30:32 pm »
Can anyone tell me please.... When incubating goose eggs what is the maximum time that they can go over the 30 day incubation period and still be OK? Mine are at 33 days with no sign of hatching.


Thanks in advance

35 days for most geese, 28 for most ducks.

Well the incubator had a built in goose program so I used that.... I remember 37 degs for some of the duration.... as it reached the 30 days the humidity rose to 60-65%
