    I wouldnt, unless you have a seperate hatcher. There is lots of bacteria associated with hatching. So if you hatch in the same incubator while there are other eggs incubating, then you could put those eggs at risk.

    Just make sure that the eggs are room temp, and that you dont let them touch the eggs that have already been put in.
