    So can i put eggs in my bator now and then next week add another batch? I plan on taking them out at 18 days and putting them in a hatcher so I won't have to worry about changing the humidity or anything. Can I do this without problems?

    This can be done with very little amount of problems. Just make sure you know which eggs are which when moving them

    I agree with the first poster; and on that note I did just that and had a 100% hatch rate for both sets! GOOD LUCK!

    Hollymh,
    I was in Guam for 6 weeks with the AF last year. What part of Guam do you live? It was really rainy when I was there! I really LOVED the sushi they had at the commissary on base, and the food throughout the island was so good! In 6 weeks I gain 15lbs!
