How Long Does it take for Goose Eggs to Hatch?

At my work, I found a goose laying on two eggs on Sunday 27th 2011 on the roof of a huge building I patrol.  I love to do my rounds because I get to stop and enjoy the view and the goose and this process she has to lay her babies.

How Long Does it Take for Goose Eggs to Hatch?

Baby Goose

 

The average time for a goose egg to hatch is thirty days after it has been laid. There are variations in species, but for domesticated geese, the average incubation time is a month. Geese make incredibly good parents and usually are fully capable of taking care of their own eggs, so there is generally no need for incubators like with chickens or game birds.Size

  • Geese lay an average of 12 eggs in a clutch. They do not lay them all on the same day, so some eggs may hatch a day or two later than others.
