I have some eggs I'd like to add to my bator but I have some eggs already on day 6. If I added eggs they would be on day 12 when the other eggs are on day 18. With raising the humidity would this effect the eggs on day 12?

It's not a good idea to do staggered hatches in an incubator unless you have a hatcher to send the 18 day old eggs to. Yes, raising the humidity higher on the 18 day old eggs will affect the 12 day old eggs, too much humidity. My thoughts....

Not a good idea it would stop the evaporation of the other eggs and not enough fluid would be out of the egg and the air sac would be to small.
