    im going to put some black copper marans eggs in incubator, is it better to fill the incubator or will it matter to just set the fifteen eggs

    Set as many eggs as you want (just don't cram them in). Incubators will run fine without being full.

    They do tend to heat more evenly when filled more, but it won't make a huge difference.
