So, I am a brave soul. I think that a lot of time we chicken people are so concerned about hatching that we vastly over think it. I have been told that staggered hatches are bad, the humidity is not good, etc. But I live in Florida. As I speak, the humidity outside is 100%, raining like crazy with nearly torrential downpours! Surely chicks can hatch outside in this under a momma bird! I mean, I support about 50 songbirds with feeders and my berry garden - they live just fine in the miserable heat and mugginess and they don't have a roof in most cases. I have one little forced air hovabator with a turner, in my closet. I do dry hatches quite successfully. Due to a human miscommunication error, I got eggs I ordered way spaced out. I got a box, then 4 days later another box, then today another box! So here I am undertaking a large staggered hatch for the first time. I have 73 eggs in that one tiny incubator and no hatcher to speak of. Timeline: July 1st, 9pm - I set 3 dozen eggs, Cochins, Wyandottes, and Ameraucanas July 4th, 1pm - I set FBCMs, EEs, Welsummers, and D'uccles July 8th, 10am - I set a dozen Salmon Faverolle and 3 denizli longcrower eggs. So I am looking at total lockdown time being over a week - 10 days total. Does anyone have advice for me or reassurance? For each hatch I was thinking of taking the eggs that need more time and putting them in plastic cartons in there so they don't get icky!
