Now I understand the why of THREE 'bators

    I bought a 'bator....good job....a Genesis with a turner.

    Then I realized that if I was going to stagger hatches, I would need another one to use as a hatcher. So I bought another turner.

    Now I realize that unless you have staggered your starts in the 'bator by more than at least the full 5-6 days it could take from Day 18 through 21 plus a day or two for stragglers, need another hatcher....

    Oh my.....I've got two eggs in the 'bator that need to go into the hatcher today, but....I've got pipping and zipping going on in there and don't want to mess them up to add eggs.....Ouch !!!!! And I just got eggs yesterday that should go in the bator today (no problem), and more that should arrive today or tomorrow to go in the bator (no problem), but when it's time to put the second batch of them into the hatcher I'm going to have the same problem.....Oh my....

    Third 'bator coming up....?? I wouldn't be surprised....
    Eeek......I thought I was done when I ordered the FIRST one....
