I have 3 silkie hens and they are laying like crazy right now. I know, crazy with the cold but either way they are. It's killing me putting these eggs in the fridge so I'm saving about 5 days worth at a time and sticking them in my Hovabator. I want to keep adding eggs each week, but eventually I'll get to lock down and not all the eggs will be ready for that. I'm thinking about getting or making another incubator just for hatching chick's. So the eggs would be in there about 3 or so days. Do you think a still air would be alright just for those 3 day hatching? I don't want to spend a bunch of ,only and buy another Hovabator since it's just for a few days, but I also don't want to ruin a Hatch with a bad hat check error. Any recommendations?
