Switching incubator during incubation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm a first-timer incubating quail eggs.  I'd initially ordered a Little Giant still air incubator.  I didn't do enough of research, and later read more than a few bad reviews.  By that time, I'd already received the Little Giant and my eggs.  I decided to order a Brinsea mini advanced for future use.  Sure enough, the Little Giant has already shown signs of crapping out.  By the time the Brinsea arrives, I will have had my eggs in the Little Giant for 4 days.  My question is, can I switch the eggs into the Brinsea without any serious negative side effects?  Thanks in advance for any advice.

Yes, and good decision with the Brinsea Mini. Dang good incubator, wouldn't trust another brand to hatch my eggs.

I switch between my Octagon and Mini quite a lot during incubation. Just make sure the temp and humidity is stabilized prior to moving the eggs.
