    Hi all,
    A dog got onto my property and killed all my chickens, so I had to transfer the eggs into my incubator (they were sat on for 5 days i think) I had eggs in an incubator day 15, so the dates are all out... How do I manage eggs hatching at different times as I have read I should be in lockdown.. Ones started to pip this morning [​IMG]

    I'm sorry for the loss of your chickens, dog attacks are something we hear a lot about here.

    I don't have any experience hatching eggs but there are a lot of members that do. Post your question over on the Incubating & Hatching Eggs forum and I'm sure someone there can help you out.

    Good luck with your hatch!

    Can you at least mark the eggs so you know they are from the new batch and not due to hatch yet? Also please check out the predator threads to find out how to keep dogs and other preds away from your flock.
