I just went to a MOPS meeting and a freind there brought me 12 eggs her triplets had painstakingly gatherd over the last 7 or 8 days, I have a couple problems.

#1 I already have 35 eggs with 2 diffrent hatch dates in my LG bator..well actually 3 diffrent hatch dates but one hatch date is just one egg.
Should I ad them and say to heck with it , whats a 3rd hatch date?
They are between 7-8 days and 4 days old already.
#2 I lost control of my self and did an crazy auction last week , now I have eggs on the way I was gonna set the 12 eggs and the 6 that are comeing at the same time at least but the other eggs wont be shipped till saterday makeing it tues/wens or even thursday next week befor they come, by then the other 12 eggs will be between like 9-14 days old.. thats not so good right?
#3 Is there some sort of shot or pill you can take to curb this addiction, maybe a patch or some gum?

Thank you
Sincerly . Overwhelmed...

I don't know how many is too many.
Is this your first hatch ever?
I could see if being a little over whelming if you're just starting out.
Do you have another bator to hatch in?

No patch, no gum...we are thinking about a support group though!

I have several hatches in the incubator now. The key to multiple hatches is having a seperate incubator and hatcher. Then you can hatch til your hearts content!

I have a home made stryo bator that holds temps fairly well but its small , Im looking into getting a bigger stryo cooler if i can find one , the one I have can probly only hold 8 eggs or so . I dont like it cause it has a tapperd bottom so its starts out ok sized but by the time its at the bottom its small, drives me nuts but anyways.
I coud use that for the one egg but I dont think the 12-14 of the second hatch could fit.
I went around lookinf for eggs and at first didnt find any and now im buried in them
