Raising geese - Incubating eggs
Goose eggs are notoriously more difficult to incubate than chickens especially if shipped. There are a few tips that can lead to a more successful hatch. I have hatched quite a few goslings over the years using these incubation techniques.
I never let my geese incubate nor raise their goslings. I will allow the parents to raise the goslings after 3 weeks or so in my care. By this time, they are still very friendly toward me and have the benefit of being on grass with the larger geese who generally accept the young geese with no problems.
Best tips for how to incubate goose eggs
Assisting goslings is not as simple or straightforward as it may seem. If you assist too early, the egg membrane is full of blood vessels that will rupture, and you might do more harm than good.
Good luck with the goslings!
