Hi Pippa, welcome. I haven't incubated goose eggs before, just chickens and I bought one of these last year (boy have they gone up in price though). I and a friend of ours got a batch of chickens out of them, I got 16 and she got 17

It says it takes 9-12 geese eggscheers

I have the same incubator, no problem with chickens and ducks. I hatched 4 Rouen ducks last year, they are big! Had to help two out of their shell but all thriving. All I would say is don't cram too many in. The incubating time for the ducks was longer than books said.
