Can someone tell me if you have eggs started in the incubator already can you add new eggs to it?
Yes you can. It just makes things a little more complicated. Make sure and mark the eggs with the date you put them in. Then what I do is when the first batch hits lockdown at 18 days I move them to an incubator that I use solely as a hatcher. Really I think the only way to have "staggered hatches" is to have two incubators. Your hatcher can be a cheaper model if you like, such as a still air. Does this help?
Yes, it helps a lot. i do have two incubators and was planning on using it how you suggested but wanted to make sure before i did it.
Thanks so much.
Also, what about having big eggs and little eggs incubated together. does it mater on egg size?
no it doesn't matter
If you were to do this then you may want to get a "hatcher." This will make it so that when lockdown comes for some eggs and not others, you can put some into the hatcher and will not have to bother the hatching eggs to turn the other eggs. Hopefully you could understand that...
