    I am wondering if adding 12 more eggs to incubator at day 7 of 30 eggs would affect the 30 eggs?? With the temp dropping to get the new eggs to temp?? Does that make sense or am I just worrying too much?

    It should not effect the existing incubating eggs at this time of development. The little time it takes for the newly introduced eggs to warm up should not effect the overall temp much to be concerned about.
