So here is the story, it is an unusual situation involving 2 incubators so I have not been able to find any advice that applies to my situation. So maybe one of you can help give me some advice. The Plan: Hatch 4 dozen eggs in 2 incubators at the same time. We have friends wanting hens and we offered to do a hatch project with our kids for them and we thought we could keep a few hens ourself and eat any roos. We ordered from 3 people (knowing shipped eggs have a low hatch rate we thought 3 shipments and the 2 bators would help our chances). First order of 2 dozen: Seller shipped 28, all were intact and place in bator on 3-1. - So far things are going great and out of the 28, 21 were fertile and we have 16 going strong now at day 10. They are in Incubator #1. Second order of 1 dozen: Arrived in pieces! Only 7 of the 15 shipped eggs were not smashed. 2 had major cracks and 2 had detached air cells. We had 3 remaining. Not knowing what to do, I wiped off the yolk covered eggs and I placed those 3 remaining in incubator #2 on 3-3. I told the seller about the eggs and she said she would gladly ship more, (wonderful gal)! Third order of 1 dozen: Was suppose to arrive the same day as the second. After watching the tracking I noticed the eggs seemed stuck in limbo. Sure enough, our address from PayPal was incorrect and the eggs were shipped back to seller. (They were olive eggs that I was REALLY looking forward to) I told seller to expect them back and to please send more on my dime (thinking they would arrive with the other dz that was being resent, AND THEY WERE) So. Second Order comes again with 10 beautiful eggs in tact, same day as the reorder of the third with 18 eggs! All 28 were set in incubator #2 last Friday on 3-8! So hatch dates (21 days) should be: First order of 2 dozen: March 21st Second order of just 3 eggs: March 24th Reorders of 2nd and 3rd: March 29th What is a girl to do with those 3 eggs? Put them in Incubator 1 or 2? And how should I handle the humidity and early hatch? I should also note that Incubator 1 is borrowed from the 4-H office and has to be returned by March 25th. So those 3 eggs would not be able to stay in Incubator 1 unless they hatch early with the others. Sorry for writing a novel, but I hope the info can help you with your advice! Thanks friends!
