    I keep mine for days, but after 7 hatchability drops. After day 14 there is not a good chance...

    If theres room I'd just go ahead and stick the other eggs in there.

    Max days I've ever hatched from was 10. 7 is best. If you can keep them separate, go ahead and stick them in with the others. The whole bator will just smell really bad by the time the last ones hatch.
