    Out of 17 eggs I bought two are developing and in the incubator on day 14.
    I just received a shipment of a dozen eggs. Can I put them in with the two?
    Should I get another incubator for the new eggs? (I have a styro lil giant with egg turner)
    If they can be added how would this effect either batch during lock down?
    Appreciate any advice.

    If you're already on day 14, perhaps your shipped eggs can wait a few days to be set. If you have good hatch rates with your LG, consider getting another one so that one can be a bator and one used as a hatcher. I am able to do several staggered hatches this way.

    This is my first experience with incubating (and the LG brand)
