Here is a Hova-Bator method concerning staggered hatches for people that dont have time to turn them 3 times a day (meaning you're using the automatic turner) 1- Get an egg carton (or two or three ) and put all your current incubating eggs in there for now. Set them aside (if you're worried, put them under a lightbulb or in your hatcher for now). 2- Pop out the small metal clips and plastic circles on the egg racks on the side with the motor on your turner. 3- Push the small plastic holders that keep the racks in place in, and then get your main connecting rack out of the way. 4- Remove the egg turners on the side farthest from the motor. For every 4 LF eggs you need to put in lockdown, take out a rack. 5- Once you've taken out the racks needed, secure the pins and plastic circles back on the racks still in the turner. 6- Put the turner in your HovaBator and place the lockdown eggs in the space where the removed egg racks were, so they are not turned. 7- Put all the turning eggs back in the racks. 8- Plug the turner into the outlet, and adjust temperature. 9- If you don't have a hatcher, then remove the turner entirely when no eggs need to be turned. Wait for your babies to emerge!!! What do you think???
