    Normally I just have about 12 eggs in my bator. This time I put in 51. Is it normal for this many eggs to impact the temp. In my bator?

    It could. The first thing you will notice is that it will take longer for the temperature to stabilize simply because it takes longer to get all those eggs up to temperature. Then depending on if you have a fan or not, you may have to adjust your heat. I wouldn't make any adjustments until they have been in there a day or two
