    Oh no, both of the ones I have are busy with eggs.

    What if you put them all in one incubator and moved them to the second one for hatching. Maybe there is a way to shuffle them all between the 2 bators you have.

    Quote:Wow, you are just Mr Incubator Lender. By the way your chicks are due to hatch this weekend. I have some Welsummers due in 2 weeks that I was going to send a few to you, so I might just hold on to them all until the last batch is done. Unless you want your babies right away.

    I am going to return the 8 month old Welsummer to you. She is just way too noisy. Although I'm loving getting eggs from her. Let me know what works best for you.
