    a hen of mine has been laying, shes layed 7 eggs in 8 days. yesterday i put 6 in the bator. its been close to 100 with the heat index here so is there a chance they could have started to develop in the nest box even tho she wasn't sitting on them? ive candled them all and they all seem to be at different stages. when its "lockdown" time do i just take part of the egg turner out and leave the newer ones on it or what? im a newbie at this. so any help is appreciated.

    Yes this has happened before, but you need to treat them all the same, when its lock down for one, its lock down for everybody. It should turn out pretty good. Good luck [​IMG]
