    You can but it makes it hard. When you have chicks walking on eggs that are suppose to be on lock down. Also to take the chicks out will mess with humidity on lock down wggs. I have done it before and just been aware of the humidty and trying to keep the others from walking on the others and moving them around for very long. Good Luck!
