The eggs I ordered 3 week ago finally showed up in the mail today - lovely postal service The problem is I only have one incubator and I am on day 13 of the second batch of eggs I ordered when the first one didn't show up. Are staggered hatches a good idea or a bad idea? I don't know how viable these eggs are yet but I hate to just toss them and I do have room in the incubator. They are blue/black/splash silkies (24 of them) and I really, really wanted them. I have them settling now while I wait for advice from silkiechicken (it's her incubator and I'm sure she wants it back for her own eggs soon lol) and anyone else who can help me with this. My only broody hen is already sitting on 5 eggs, day 13 as well. Need help and advice...please.
