    Does it affect hatchability if the eggs are crowded in the incubator? I'm just trying to decide how many eggs to order. My incubator holds 60 eggs, but I don't want to harm them by putting the max in there. Thanks!

    i think its a good thing to fill up the incubator to max capacity. the more eggs the more stable the temp will be because they act like heat sinks.
