I'm wondering when everyone starts setting eggs for this year in there incubators? Have you started yet? How many do you do at one time? Is it ok to set eggs say once a week and brood them in the same brooder as last week chicks or will the little ones get picked on to much? What about when they get a little older and move to the grow out pen, is it ok to mix ages?

I have planned to start collecting eggs on Feb 1 and set on the 10th.

Thanks for your help.
