    Well, early or I am not aware that beltsville whites have a shorter incubation?

    So I was going to put the bator into lockdown tonight, three days left. But the beltsville whites are hatching. Also have bourbon reds in there and a couple goose eggs. So far just the whites hatching. I did not have the turner off yet or the eggs on the floor. I had to open it to take the turning arm off so the little guy didn't get squished. But now what? Just let them crawl around on the eggs not ready to hatch? Wait for a few to hatch and out them in my spare icebox incubator? Sigh. I had this all planned to be ready... Thursday! Lol

    Well one was about to drown in the water in the base so I moved the two that hatched to the other incubator and took the turning tray out and out the rest in the plastic door as they were supposed to be. Hoping for the best now!
