Steps on Hatching
Geese to Have Healthy Geese
Do you have a farm or a big backyard where you want
to raise geese in addition to your other poultry animals? Or do you
just want to have geese as pets? Either way, geese always make a
great addition. Now all you need to do is get started on hatching
geese. If you want an instant flock of geese without the hassle of
having to buy a gander and a goose, that would take some work on
your part, but it's very doable. You could think of it as a little
project and at the same time a great investment.
First, gather all the things you will need in hatching geese. You
will need broody hens for these procedures. You will also need
nesting boxes, warming boxes, feeds for the goslings or any baby
chick starters. And of course, you will need goose eggs that have
already been fertilized. This is actually the first step in hatching
geese. Buy goose eggs from well-known dealer or store. And also,
make sure that the eggs you're going to buy are not the edible ones.
The next thing you should do is to prepare the nesting boxes. To
make sure that the eggs will be safe, dust them with insect powder.
You also need to dust the hens when the eggs are nearly hatched. As
for the third step, you will need to turn the eggs for the hens once
a day. A single hen can hatch around five eggs, but the eggs will be
too big for it to turn by itself.
Hatching geese will also require you to have patience. The eggs will
need some time, around 30 to 35 days. As for the next step, you have
to make sure that the hens keep on laying the eggs. Allow them off
the eggs at least once in a day but make sure that water and food
are plenty around them so that they would not wander far from the
nests. It is important that the eggs do not cool.
The next step requires you to lightly shower the eggs with tepid
water on the last week before they hatch. And on the day before they
are about to hatch, immerse the eggs with warm water. You will see
them bob a couple of times then put them back into the nest. If an
egg has cracked, make sure that you do not let the water get inside
it or else the gosling will drown.
