    I set eggs and then set another batch 1 day after(came in a day later). I have 2 bators, but since they all fit in one I kinda ordered eggs to fill the other bator(which I was using as my hatcher, can you say addicted?). Since it's only one day can I just split the difference on when to up the humidity? Or will the second set be ok having the humidity bumped a day early?

    I would bump humidity on day 19 for the first batch..which will be day 18 for the 2nd batch. You should be fine. I've done this without any problems. Good luck with your hatch.
