I have 7 eggs set to hatch this coming week. I also have 14 more eggs set to hatch 2 weeks after that. They are in the same incubator, a Genesis Hovabator which I have had excellent results with in the past. This is a first for me, and I am trying to plan it out so that I can avoid losing some of the second batch of eggs. I am concerned that not turning the second batch of eggs while the first batch is hatching may be a problem, also loss of humidity and cooling while I am cleaning up from the first hatch. So.. I am thinking about leaving the turner in the incubator and just removing the slats that are not in use. That would leave the frame of the turner, and of course the slats that have the second batch of eggs in them. The second batch of eggs could still turn while the first batch is hatching. I could put a divider in the incubator so that the hatched chicks could not come into contact with the second batch of eggs, and foam over the exposed frame. My worry though is one of the new chicks getting stuck over part of the frame and ending up with a splayed leg or something. Another option is taking the turner out and then just kind of shaking the incubator around a bit to try and turn the eggs without opening it. I would have to do that for 3-5 days though, and I am not feeling very confident getting a good hatch that way. Any suggestions?
