    Can you put more eggs in the turner than what there are holes, I'm saying can you put eggs between the eggs that are in the holes?

    Quote:Yes, you can do that... Then after you candle around day 10 or so, just take out the ones that aren't any good to make room for the stacked ones. Good Luck hatching!!!!!

    I would never personally recommend it, but I have seen people Slap jam fill up an incubator (like almost 60 eggs in an incubator that was designed to hold 40). They do what the above posters do, pull the duds and replace. But they wern't really worried about rates, just wanted a large number of chicks.
