    I set ringneck eggs Dec. 30, silkies and bob whites the 1st. (technically Dec 31st (10 - 11 pm)). According to my calculations, the silkies are due the 21, the ringnecks the 22. The bob whites are due the 23.

    My question is can I put them all together in the same hatcher? I think the silkies and ringnecks should be ok. Will the bob whites be ok in there too?

    Thanks!

    If you are worried they will get squooshed make a fence halfway down the hatcher with hardware cloth [​IMG] If the bottom is hardware cloth you can use pencils as fence posts [​IMG]
