    On occaision I have had up to 14 different egg shipments for my travels - all needing to arrive at the same time.

    I always contact the seller to ensure that they will be able to ship on a particular day with eggs no older than three days.

    For the most part it works. I have only had to leave two shipments out of over a hundred in the mail system.

    staggered hatches can work fine.
    I set eggs every 3 or 4 days (when I'm not stupid)

    Thanks for the encouragement.

    I've had a lot of broodies over the years which probably hatched half of my chickens and even though I have a LG, I hatch most in a behemoth of a homemade incubator hatcher combo. The basis of it was a shelving unit my son was throwing away. I've been tweaking it for a couple of years since I got approval from the city to keep chickens.

    I think the chick police may have caught him. He will probably be back soon and try to fool us again
