ok - im going to suggest reading slowly as i may confuse you! so ive been researching incubating chicken eggs and i decided to give it a try seeing as i lost half my flock this year form all types of reasons. I have a small 7 egg incubator and i have four eggs in it at the moment. The thing is, I did date them, and i have been turning and all are growing nicely. but they are different dates, put it at different times. I fear i may lose even two out of four for my mistake. I have two put in on the fourth of august, one of the 5th of august and one o the 6th of august, newly layed and taken straigh to the incubator each time. but after looking at the humitiy and moisture needs of each hatch there is a possibility something bad is going to happen. If i need to turn up the temp for the 4th of august egg, something will happen to the others because they wont be ready, am i correct? or can i fix this? because if you arent meant to open the incubator while hatching etc, what happens to the august 4th chick ready to come out but i have august 5th pipping? can someone help me im confused and may have ruined everything and confused all of you!
