    Has anyone ever switched eggs from a still air bator to a forced air bator halfway through the hatch? Just wandering if it would cause problems.

    I have moved eggs from one incubator to the other multiple times without any negative effect.

    I do not use still air though, so I cannot comment on that piece of your question.

    I did switch bators last year. I had an LG and received a Humidaire, so I just got the Humidaire up to temp/humidity and made the switch. No problems, hatched just fine. I think it was about day 13 or 14 when I switched.

    Good luck

    Good. I have eggs that I will have to switch around next week. I ordered some from here and have some already started so I need to do some shuffling around.
