First - I ordered two boxes of eggs the same day, but one ended up shipping later than I had thought it would. One got here yesterday, and the other is supposed to arrive tomorrow - Saturday. Would you put the first ones (24 silkie eggs) in now, and then the others (6+ bantam cochin eggs) maybe late Saturday after they have had around 10 hours to sit. Or, should I keep these ones out and put them all in Saturday night? I don't know how old the silkie eggs are, but I got a few of each color so I imagine pretty fresh.
Second - I dragged my feet too long but finally ordered a Hovabator Genesis last night and am also in Michigan so not far to ship. Right now I have a Hovabator 2362N set up with a digital cigar thermometer/hygrometer to monitor. Should it be alright to incubate the first couple days to week in that, and then switch the whole egg turner and eggs to the Genesis?
