    Last month I ordered 6 eggs that were suppose to be a White Chinese/African Brown goose mix. I also got a new styrofoam incubator a few months ago to replace the old plastic 1 that took a crap on me last year. Out of the 6, 4 didn't do anything,1 started to I think but shortly died and luckily 1 hatched,even though I had to help it a little. It looks like it's going to be all white though like the Chinese geese,I was hoping it would have some brown in it. Maybe it will,time will tell I guess.

    Now tomorrow I'm planning on putting some duck eggs in the incubator.;)
