    So, I have about 40 chicken eggs in the bator right now, but the NPIP tester is coming soon. As far as I know, the chickens didn't come from NPIP stock, so what should I do with the bator? Give it to a friend and let them keep the chickens? Dispose of the eggs, which I'd rather not do? Just not bring attention to it? (That's not honest, so I'd prefer not to do that), are there any other options besides being retested in four months?

    Thanks!

    My tester didn't care, she only wanted to check whoever was over 4 months old and make sure the coop was clean. Anything under 4 months can't be tested anyway. I told her the truth, that I hatched my own eggs that I bought in an incubator, she said her only concern was if my flock were over 200 birds and it's not.
