    Do alot of people switch their eggs from one bator to another for incubation and then hatching?
    I read that someone likes to use their 1588 for incubation and then switches to the little giant still air for hatching and I think they keep them in there as a brooder.
    I have a brooder already but I do have 2 incubators, the same ones that they mentioned.
    Is that the way to go?
    I am not sure what to do at the end of the incubation cycle.
    What do most people do after the 18 day?

    I use my 1502 for incubating then move them to a home made incubator for hatching. This allows me to have staggered hatches and not raise the humidity in my incubator for the hatching period.
