    Can I just put more in there from room temperature or do I have to warm them up some how so the don't chill the eggs already in the incubator? What's the easiest way to warm them?

    Open bator, insert eggs. I don't think they need to be warmed, room temp should be okay. But i'm no expert.

    I put them in at room temperature, and just monitor the temperature several times to make sure the temperature is appropriate.

    I wouldn't warm the eggs myself, just room temp works for me.

    Thanks for replies. I was going to do that if no one answered so off I go. [​IMG] Pop 'em in and head for bed.

    Be sure to put the date on the eggs so you will know when they are suppose to hatch.

    Quote:Oops, can't head for bed yet. Better keep an eye on the temp.
    I'll remember the hatch date, it's my son's graduation day. [​IMG]

    Do you have a hatcher? You will need to stop turning and up the humidity(and keep the lid shut) at different times, that part can get tricky with putting in different dated eggs. [​IMG]
