    Hi I was wondering if I could combine an incubator with a hatcher. I would want to hatch as well as incubate at the same time. I would want the hatching eggs to be on the bottom stacks in the incubator and the others to be in the egg turners above. Is there any way to do this, or would it just harm the eggs in the rows above because of the humidity?

    Sure you can. Most commercial cabinet incubators like the GQF sportsman are set up that way. A separate hatcher is ideal of you are hatching a lot of eggs. Example of small cabinet that holds 2 turners and 2 hatching drawers.
