Can I move them or is it too late?

    My last 4 chicks are "officially" due to hatch tomorrow (I had one early bird that hatched yesterday). I also have a 'bator full of quail eggs on lockdown that are due Tuesday, and need the 'bator the chick eggs are in pretty soon for some more chick eggs that came in the mail today. Would it be too late at this stage to move the chick eggs to the 'bator with the quail eggs? None are pipped, but I didn't know if it would be okay to move them, or should I just let them be?

    I have had them pip and hatch right in the bator they started in. Some I had missed moving or just came early. I have been woken up a few times to pip pip in my bedroom and one had hatched early. Yes I keep them in the bedroom and my husband is ok with that.

    I have also moved them with one day to go.

    Thanks. I'm just nervous about moving them and something happening to them because of the move, since it is so late...what to do, what to do... [​IMG]
