Should I take the newer laid eggs or the older eggs to incubate?

    Well, she laid 8 eggs now and I'm thinking of trying to incubate 4 of the egg, and see if she will brood the other 4 herself whenever she starts sitting FT. Which should I take? The 1st 3-4 eggs she laid every other day, or the last 4 she has been laying on a daily basis? I'm thinking the newer, but I'd rather ask the experts here! [​IMG]

    One more question, should I fill the moisture rings of the incubator with distilled water or just regular tap? Would it make any difference?
