    I planned my two hatching egg shipments together but one breeder isn't shipping till one week later. Since one of my Lil Giants has a turner I am wondering if I can just add the week late eggs to the incubator until lock down. I have another incubator with no tuner that I can transfer the first group on for the lock down.

    I think that would be fine, but you also ask on the Incubating and Hatching thread as well! Some people use a separate incubator for hatching anyway, you just need to make sure the temperature and humidity is stable in which ever incubator you use! The one without a turner will be fine for lockdown, since you don't need to turn the eggs anyway

    Out of curiosity- what are you going to hatch? [​IMG]
