    I was given some eggs (17!) from a hen who wasn't sitting on them. figured since there was only one hen and one roo they were most likely fertile so i took them to put in my incubator. well, got them home, stuck them in for a day and then candled them to see if she had been sitting on them at all... i've got 17 eggs with what looks to be 4 different stages of incubating! a couple look like my 14 day ones, while others look close to 7-8 days and some even less... so how do i go about incubating these now? i've only got one incubator... i need to stop 'finding' eggs!!!

    OMG...I would panic.... [​IMG] but YOU don't! [​IMG] I'm not all that experienced but I would think you don't have much choice but to let it play out.See what hatches first...the bad part is...then you have to somehow clean up the bator and let it keep running for a while....boy,hope someone on here has done this before! Here's a bump!
