    hi - ordered eggs off ebay and they came yesterday, let them settle then put them in bator last night, hoped the other 6 i had ordered would be here today but no sign [​IMG] only have 1 bator (and no hatcher) so can i put the other 6 in once they are here 2morrow and just keep a close eye out in 21 days for staggered hatching? (sorry i'm new to this!! )

    How are you turning them? If you can have separate turning systems, so the 'young' ones can be turned while the 'old' ones are sitting still for their last three days it might work.

    While the first batch are hatching, you really don't want the incubator to be opened, 'cause it'll loose too much humidity.

    i'm turning them by hand so that wont be problem cos while the "old ones" are hatching it'll be the "young ones" last 3 days of no turning, heres hoping ! Thanks for reply [​IMG]
