    You have to put all the eggs in at the same time, unless you have 2 incubators. But since it is now too late, what I would do is take your turner out but very quickly turn your eggs that are still progressing even though you are not supposed to open your incubator during lockdown, in your circumstances you may need to.

    There is a chance your
    Don’t replace the duds because they’ll all hatch at different stages

    Don't worry if they are only a couple of days apart! Baby chicks don't all hatch together under Mama Hen either. They have enough yolk absorbed from the egg before hatching so they don't need food and water for the first 72 hours. You can leave the hatched one/s in there until the others are born. Please keep us posted! Good hatching!

    Don’t worry. They can take up to 24 hours to progress after pipping. I’d just leave them be till morning.
