    I'm new to all this and I was just wondering if you could add more eggs to an incubator a few days after adding the first set?

    Yes, you can add eggs. The problem comes at the end of incubation when you need to stop turning the eggs and up the humidity. Unless you've got a seperate incubator to use as a hatcher it doesn't work. One bunch of eggs or the other isn't going to be getting the right conditions.
