    Trying to figure out how many eggs to reserve from our annual poultry swap. How many eggs can I safely incubate and hatch in my 1588? I will be removing chicks after they've been hatched for 24 hours (in a hot steamy bathroom) to help make room.

    I have actually done about 65 with the egg turner, double stacking them:). It worked great!
