Well like quails, it's all preferrence. You can move them whenever. I usually wait for a clutch of 3-5. And yes, they do thrash the other eggs around.  c29

seems like since these three bruts came out the other eggs are not pipping or chipping the eggs anymore, but I cannot keep track of the eggs either since they have moved from one sie to the other.

Did you not mark your egg sides?
The eggs will be fine no matter what side they are on.

Way back when I used incubators, I used to set the eggs in/on a rubber O-ring to help prevent that from happening. When the other eggs roll, the un-hatched chick can sometimes drown.

I agree with Reeves, the first chicks that was hatching in my new incubator last year drown like this. Has I have an Hova-Bator, I put the eggs that are supposed to hatch in something to keep the chicks away from the turner and in the same way, it keep the shells scrap away from clean eggs.

Good luck  :wink:

Frank...you shouldn't incubate and hatch in the same machine. Different humidities required and then there is the bacteria issue to be very concerned about.

Not to mention all that nasty mess you have to clean up plus the dust that gets on all the other eggs left in there.

As I understand it, the general rule is 24 hours BUT....

There are people that turn eggs by hand 3 times or more a day. there are also those that candle eggs during the incubation period several times. which means the temp changes

Provided there aren't too many eggs in the oven and even though some may not agree, What I've done myself is: be sure there are no cool air drafts then move those that have hatched out, when completely dry, to a brooder. you'll have to guess at that. Those that are bouncing off the walls are giving strong signs of being dry

When doing so, take out the empty egg shells and do what ever else as quickly as possible.  I've helped those having a hard time hatch out the rest of the way too but it is best to allow them to do it them selves when ever possible. 

Chicks do get tired and rest while still in the shell

Unfortunately, some do appear to drown.. they're perfectly normal and die in their shell but for me its always been low percentage.

Well thy have occupied my office for now.  The room is a constant 82 degrees.  The brooder is 92 degrees, and the incubator is 100.9-101.4 still air.  No possible drafts.  It has however made my office awful to surf the Internet on! LOL....Dammit it is humid in here.

Thanks guys.  They are all doing well. I have another batch of 12 and then another of 13 in the incubator.  I will be putting 16 more in soon from different bloodlines.
