I was wondering if it was ok to incubate the egg as soon as it is laid, or do I need to stockpile them until there are a certain amount? I have one egg in my incubator right now, and I expect another egg to be laid today. Can I put them in the incubator one at a time? How will this affect the hatching of later eggs, or the earlier eggs? I am new to incubation and chickens! I had my mother hen hatch her first batch with me, but we ended up losing all ten chicks that hatched. I am trying to prevent further mishaps by doing this myself!
