Default New clutch in with old... Can I move older clutch and when?

Morning I have a bit of a dilemma.
My Ibera has laid 3 clutches in total this year. Last year she only laid the one. So when placing her first clutch of eggs in the incubator, I placed 3 in one tub, another 3 in another and 1 by itself . Since then she had laid 2 more clutches. Her last clutch I put some in with her first clutch as I was running out of room.
So I have 2 questions!

When are they expected to hatch? My temps have been 30.5 to 31.5

And Is it safe to move them and put them all in the same container (keeping the right way up of course) as I'm worried they will hatch while at work or out and the hatchlings could roll my other eggs.
They are on day 57 or should I leave them for a few more days and then move them?
Thanks

At those temperatures I would expect them to hatch between 65 and 70 days, so you have a few more days before you need to more them. You can move the last clutches eggs and put them with the other eggs in that same clutch. I know you have no room, but putting them inbetween the other eggs is just fine for now. All your trying to do is put them somewhere where they won't roll. After your first clutch hatches, you'll have room to spread out again.
