I set 44 eggs about 9 days ago, and then got a batch yesterday. I couldn't know when the second batch was coming when I set the first, or I would have waited awhile. I planned on builing a home made bator out of a styrofoam cooler I have, but don't have all the parts-- and buying them will take another week's wait for a paycheck. The 44 are in a automatic turner (with two that don't have slots), and the new batch is 22. I was thinking take them out of the turner and put them all in the current 'bator and hand turning all of them. Fine and good, except what would I do at lockdown? The 22 would still need turning and yet the 44 need to be in lockdown!. Now, i may have already gotten the home made one goijg by then, but what if I don't? I incubate yogurt in a cooler and that stays at 100 degrees by keeping a jar of boiling water in there and refreshing it if the temp goes down. But the cooler is very humid and there's no air, so i don't think that would be good for the eggs/chickies inside. So can I just set these new eggs in with the Day 9 eggs? Second question is about the humidity. I finally have a hygrometer for this batch. (this is my third hatching-- bad outcome first time, about 75% second hatching) Humidity was reading 60% within the first day (44 eggs), so i took the water out of the water tray, it is now at about 45% is that good? there is NO water in the water trays. This is a still air Hovabator. Thanks!
