    Hi

    I just bought a 2-story 96 egg incubator
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUTOMATIC...id=100033&rk=3&rkt=4&mehot=pp&sd=281923692564

    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 :)
