Hi

 

I just bought a 2-story 96 egg incubator

Instructions say to put eggs in the lower compartment 2-3 days before putting eggs in the upper compartment.  Do any of you have an incubator similar to this?  Will the chicks on the lower floor not hatch 2-3 days earlier and is that not a bad idea?  I am very confused about why instructions say this and would really appreciate your insights on the matter :)
