I want to hatch as many eggs as possible this year but only have one incubator. I'm looking for tips and tricks for keeping track of next generation at hatch time. For those who use a pedigree breeding system in your flock; Do you incubate each hen's clutch of eggs in batches? Or do you place a divider of some kind if your incubator at hatch time, separating the one hen's chicks from another hen's chicks.
I know if I want to get really serious about this project I should purchase or invest in the supplies to build another incubator, but at this point my numbers are still very small. (3 hens & 1 roo) The new raising pens take priority in 2016.
