    its not an exact thing. you could have some of the eggs you put in at the same time hatch 8 hours apart from one another

    They should hatch all about the same time. At least within the same couple of days.

    They will all hatch at different times. I put lots of eggs in the incubator to hatch on the same day every week. Some will hatch a day early, some will hatch on time, and some hatch a day or two late. Same with be for you.

    Some of the ones you set 8 hrs later will hatch with the others some will not. The early ones, same thing.

    Some of the eggs might take a day or to longer to hatch then the rest! I put 16 eggs in my incubator over a whole weekend 3 weeks ago, they are starting to hatch now and only 1 hatched this Saturday and two hatched today. 13 eggs still haven't hatch so they would be considered a couple days late.
