    My husband would kill me if I bought another bator, but the lg I have could be returned. I really would like to get a hova that has the set temp and turner, and I'm wanting to know if you can move the egss from one bator to another, mid cycle. I assume you can, but would like some "expert" advise and tips please [​IMG]

    I'm no expert, but I don't see why not. I would set up the new bator for 24 hours, make sure it's stable, then move the eggs when you are set to turn them. Have the new bator right next to your old one. That's what I would do. [​IMG]

    That's what I was figuring, but I don't want to mess up on my first hatch!

    If it's before 18 days, I don't see why not.

    Thanks, I saw that [​IMG]
    Now I have to secretly buy the hova without dh knowing-maybe he won't notice the two bators on the counter [​IMG]
