    Can I share an incubator with two sets of eggs that are about 10 days apart?

    Only if you have 2 incubators .... one to hatch in.
    10 days apart, I don't think so. I wouldn't risk it.

    some people do it.. but they've been doing it a LONG time... and they often have a seperate incubator to move them into when they need to go on "lockdown" the last few days... you know the ones that drag on and on and on and you're not sposed to open the bator... can't open the bator can't turn the ones that need turning.. and if they're auto turning, the ones that are ready to hatch shouldn't be turning...

    i'm not that brave yet....

    I just picked up a used Hoba-vator on Craigslist today because I have a staggered hatch in my LG. I'm testing it now. It is still air so I might order a fan and use it as my hatcher or vice versa. We'll see if I get it figured out.
