    Well stand still for long enough and candle them. Look long and hard. Is there any movement? I would say if one is smelling really bad then thats evidence that its dead.

    Use this as a guide, its intended for chicks but the basic process is the same. Fresh Pics: Stages of Chick Embryo Development

    You don't say how long you've been trying to incubate them.

    Here's a simple guide to incubation of goose eggs. Farming Friends » Incubating Goose Eggs
    This is also an article on incubating and development of goose eggs. Hatching waterfowl eggs (From Smallholder)

    Good luck.
