    I have a staggered hatch going on. Tonight I need to put the first batch of eggs on lock down. Should I move the second batch to a different bator? I am worried that by raising the humidity, I could drown the second batch of eggs. I guess I just need a little hand holding. I am praying for more than on chick out 17 eggs. The second batch, is even more precious to me. I won a dozen Jersey Giant show eggs at a chicken show raffle. I feel like the whole group of other Washington BYC'ers are expecting a good hatch.

    Rather be safe than sorry, I'd put them in the other incubator [​IMG]

    x2 I always move mine to another bator only because I have three running all the time... always better safe than sorry
