I have a couple different hatch dates in my incubator...they are at days 16,12 and 8. My question is when I put my first set on lock down in 2 days and then raise the humidity is that going to create a problem for the other eggs? I need to raise it to between 55-65% right?? These are shipped silkie eggs.
Thanks for your help!!

The problem will come if the hatching eggs contaminate the incubating eggs. Bacteria could kill your other eggs. This is why most people with staggered hatches have a second incubator for hatching.
