    I have about 8 eggs in my bator on day 16/17 right now, and so i can have a good laying amount. I need to know if it's okay to put in 6 new eggs while the other eight on day 16 are still in there.

    I dont see a problem with it. We do it quite a bit and haven't had any problems with it. Thats just my opinion. [​IMG]

    Do you have a turner? I want to add some more soon but the eggs I have in there are on an auto turner and have to be taken out 3 days before the hatch.

    Quote:Please just take into consideration this is what we do. I'm not saying it is right or wrong it is just what we do.When the hatching eggs has to quit turning we take the turner out and turn the other egs by hand and then when the first ar done hatching the turner goes back in. We just have a small bator and its kinda agravatting but it works.
