    bantam mixes, a couple other larger breeds all laid within the last couple days, and picking up 12 more tomorrow... i'm going to be in biiig trouble if they all hatch [​IMG] time to get the incubator up and running again before setting them tomorrow afternoon!

    i just realized that the dates they were laid was 5-6 days ago, should i just go ahead and put them in now or should i wait until tomorrow night when i get the others to put them in? They'd be 24 hours ahead of the others, does it really make that much of a difference when it comes to lockdown? I want to get these in soon... before i almost knock them off the desk, which i almost did!

    We are on a roll with incubating eggs this spring (and it isn't even officially spring yet)!

    My last hatch I set eggs a day apart. I locked them down according to the first ones set. In spite of 3 power outages, 23 chicks hatched last week.
