    If you have 40 eggs in incubator and 15 hatch early morning and no others are pipping, is it ok to take the 15 out that evening or is it best to leave them in another day or 2. thanks

    i usually leave them in there for 2 days when that happens... if not, i get some hot water from the humidity trays, and put them in a small spray bottle... i pull them out and spray the walls and roof of the bator really quick... i also turn off the fans since they blow out the humidity somewhat fast...
