there is loads of info on this site about hatching eggs, have a look at the waterfowl section.
If your egg hatches, It is not a good idea to keep just one goose, they are very social birds, you would need to find another fairly newly hatched gosling to raise at the same time, it doesn't have to be the same breed, the other option is to find someone who aready has geese who may be able to take the gosling and rear it with their own youngsters.
Good luck with your egg. :-)17
