So sorry to hear about your loss, @nuklee0
. I hope you get some of your chicks. I'm really glad you asked the question, actually, because I'm doing the same thing. I have three silkie eggs at day 9 and had to throw NINE out because of infertility. :| Other half went and bought some cemani eggs. I can't leave them sitting there till this hatch is over, so I'm going to have to stagger too. As these hatch, the cemani's should be at day 11/12 so I'm going to have be really careful with air sacs. :|
Thanks @Sally Sunshine
for the advice!
If those cemani eggs were spendy you may want to consider buying or making a second incubator/hatcher. If not, at least separate the eggs so the silkie chicks don't walk all over and poop on the other eggs. That's a lot of time for bacteria to grow. Does anyone think the incubator would need to be cleaned between hatches too?
