    I'm starting a group of all shipped eggs. I would like to start the nones I have on Monday but some may not be here until The or Wed. Is it ok to put them in late?or should I wait?

    Have you incubated before? Have you tried staggered hatches? What kind of incubator are you using? You will want to rest eggs after shipping anyway.

    Yes, I've incubated before. It's been several years (apparently 2009, when I joined this site!) though and I have never started at different times before. This year I'm using a different incubator and the eggs for turning out to be somewhat expensive.
