    I got 6 eggs and put them in the incubator and then my friend gave me 6 more today (two days later). I put them in the incubator. Should I have done that? Is that okay? Did I goof by putting eggs into the incubator two days apart?

    Unless you have a hatcher or second bator to put the first set into when day 18 comes around you may lose the second set with the humidity going up for the first set on day 18...my thoughts...I don't do staggered hatches just for this reason of maybe losing the seond set............
