    I am so excited my eggs are hatching in 6 days :love:love but I also have 16 5 day old eggs in the same incubator. During lockdown can I still flip the other eggs? How would you do it??

    In a perfect world, you would have a second incubator that you would use as a hatcher. Move the older eggs to the second incubator and let the second group proceed normally. If that's not an option just continue to turn by hand until they start to pip then just leave everyone alone until the first group is done.
