I ordered my bator and began collecting eggs. I still have not received my bator :mad: Some of the eggs I collected on the 12, should I toss them? I numbered them so I know what day I collected. This will be my first attempt at incubating and already I am nervous:eek: I hope like heck the bator gets here Monday.

I would toss them. Once you get the bator it can take a day or two to regulate the temp. Of course you could set them, candle them after a few days and then pitch any that aren't developing, but overall you'll probably have better sucess with fresher eggs.

If you can get some fresh eggs easily and free, that is better, remember you have to take a day or two to calibrate your incubator. If you can't that no harm throwing them in the bator. You won't get a great hatch, but what the hay.
