    I took some eggs out from under my hen thinking that they were at the same day of incubation as the eggs in my incubator. Well, they are rocking around in the incubator now so I need to lock them down. The problem is that the other eggs are only on day 16. I'm trying to make an educated decision here but I just don't know which would be worse. Should I continue to flip the eggs? Another problem is I'm not sure which eggs are which. Not all of the eggs from the hen are rocking. Would it hurt if i accidentally flipped one of the lock down eggs? Oh and I took the eggs away because the mom was pecking them not just because. Thanks in advance. I realize I'm kind of rambling so if you don't understand what Im asking just ask:)
