|9.00am Friday 6th
At 8.45 on Friday evening there were two in the box and another three in the process of hatching.
The humidity in the incubator is kept very high (70% ) at this stage so that the membranes surrounding the emerging gosling don't dry, shrink and entrap it. To dry them off as quickly as possible after hatching I transfer them to a cardboard box on top of the stove where its much drier.
Sunday morning and the goslings were dry and running about under the heat lamp. Three more weeks of heat and they can go outside.
