Okay, so I am a relatively new chicken owner. So far, we've been having very back chicken luck. Our first batch wasn't wrapped very well, and so many broke in the mail. They were also left in the mail box. We got three out of twenty eggs. The second batch gave us nine out of twenty eggs. Then, ten out of the twelve were eaten by a fox (because we left them outside with no one home. We now know better. and one of the survivors just died from, possibly, a heart attack. Both survivors are/were roosters, so the last one, Louise, will be going to a new home as soon as we find him one.
BUT. Today, it seems that our luck has turned. This time, we ordered 30 eggs from a new breeder to account for cracked eggs, infertility, etc. Except that they were packaged really well and we now have 35 eggs. Not a single one broke.
Here is the issue. Our incubator is a Brinsea. It can hold only twenty eggs. I've seen people honeycomb them and fit in about 28. Can you stack eggs? I read that you can so long as it isn't a still-air incubator, which ours is not. Do any of you have experience stacking eggs? I'd hate to have to pick and choose.
Also, if you want to see cute chick pictures, then stick around for the three weeks. I'll post pictures of the mega wrapping job as well as the eggs, maybe tomorrow when I can take clearer pictures.
