So a while ago I posted about staggered hatching and I didn't get any replies so I thought I'd try again.

So I bought 10 eggs from a local farm, put them in the incubator about a week ago and some are so much further along than others. I only see one that might not hatch, but with the variety between eggs I'm waiting to toss. Some look like they could hatch within the next week.

I need to know when to stop turning them. I put them all in at the same time, so I expected to know when to stop turning them, but with the variety of progress I have no clue. I can get pictures, it would just be easiest with another person to help and no ones here currently. But if they are necessary I'm sure I can figure it out.

If you put them all in the incubator at the same time they should all hatch at the same time, but maybe I'm misunderstanding your post.

I guess I would mark the ones further along and stop turning when they start peeping. I have handled and moved eggs around when they are about to hatch. They tend to want to roll back to the way the chicks need the eggs to be.
