    is it ok to have them in a single layer in bator then have some sitting on top of others. im thinking just till i candle them and take out ones that have not taken. it says it can fit 60 chicken eggs but my single layer is less than 60. I now have 72 eggs in there. a friend gave me 2 doz so i stacked them on top of others. my chicks are now about 6-7 days old and have wing feathers and one has some on there bum. lol!!!!!! Its so cute.

    I am guilty of this, until I pull inferts, but I have a very powerful fan... do u have a fan and how close to the elements are the eggs? Its best to keep moving eggs around if you do this....
