I promised you a goose update today… so here we go, short and sweet. Sue had one egg crack. It wasn’t viable – there were a couple she thought were not going to make it, and I think this was one of them. It had really started to stink, so she removed it from the incubator. They are at day 25 today and I found this sight that has information from day 1 through to hatching. It’s pretty interesting if you want to check it out here. I’m just going to borrow their day 25 photo for now. This is what the embryo would look like at day 25. We’re hoping we have a couple that make it, but you just never know… especially since this is the first attempt. The book David gave me for Christmas has really helped Sue out a great deal. At this juncture, as of tomorrow, the eggs won’t be turned any more, or submerged in water. Sometimes it can take up to 3 days for them to hatch completely. Keeping our fingers crossed! We’ll keep you updated, until then, as always~
Thanks for reading!
