Hi everyone, I have a question for the people who frequently/continuously hatch eggs. I have 24+ silkie eggs that are en route to my house. Two orders of 12, one is going to the post office for me to pick up and the other should be being dropped off at my house. I paid for priority mail (2 day) for both so they should both be here relatively the same time. I have my hovabator up and running and the egg turner set up. I will let the eggs sit for at least 24 hours before I set them. But my question is, I have the option of getting some (12) blue/black/splash eggs from someone I have been talking to next week. They were originally supposed to ship this week, but the hens haven't been laying a lot, which is understandable. Should I get these ones and do a staggered hatch? Or is it too risky to separate hatch dates a week or so apart? I know shipped eggs is a gamble but every seller I ordered from gave me detailed information of how they package and ship their eggs and all seem very reliable. Now I just have to hope everything on the post office's end goes smoothly. If everything goes according to plan, I will have 36 eggs in the incubator. I would be absoluetely ecstatic if 20 hatched. I would be incredibly happy if 15 even hatched. Heck I would be happy if 10 hatched. I do know that because of things out of our control, we can't guarantee hatchability, which is why I wanted to order a large amount, to hopefully improve my chances of success. What do you think, should I still get the 12 blue/black/splash eggs and stagger the hatch? Or is it too big of a risk and I should stick with the 24 eggs? Thanks!
