OK, I have 23 eggs on day 18 today & 10 on day 17 today. I do have a hatcher. So do I
(1) put the 23 in today & put the 10 in tomorrow
or
(2) put the 10 in a day early
or
(3) put the 23 in a day late?

As of right now I'm going with #1.
Thanks Jason

Im new so count my advice as newwbie advice. but if there only a day apart cant you hatch them all together?
then you wont have to move anyone , just up youre humidity?

Throw them all in the hatcher the same day. At this point one day won't make a huge difference. Probably worse to open the bator again tomorrow than put them all in at the same time. Not turning one day won't matter a ton.
Good luck!

PS- try to candle before you put them in the hatcher, too

We I will still have to move them. I have more eggs I just put in the other day. But my hatcher is fired up & holding temp. & humidity. So moving isn't a big deal. Thanks

muscadine, al.
Since you have a hatcher go ahead and move the ones that are on day 18 today. Then tomorrow move the ones that will be on day 18. I would move the second batch speedy like so you don't lose much humitity. Good luck and happy hatching!
