So I finally gave in and let Broody #4 have 6 eggs to sit and hatch (I broke the first 3 it was too cold to be hatching chicks). I made a BIG mistake I did not segregate her from the other girls. After 10 days I noticed one of her coop mates in the nesting box, shooed her away and OMG there are 18 eggs in the box!! Now what? I thought about candling them and letting her have the ones furthest along. I can put the others in one of my incubators but if they are laying a few daily I can't manage to hatch them all due to varying requirements. My other two incubators are occupied. Any suggestions???

Thank you, yes that is what I was thinking too. I should have known better, Not sure about the rest of the eggs in the incubator, hatching over an extended period and adjusting the humidity.
