    I set eggs last night right before midnight and apparently I was to tired to check the humidity then, and when I looked today it was up to 50-55% at the highest. I waited past 24hrs since the eggs were set and corrected the problem and now am running 30-35% humidity. Temperature has been ranging from 98.5 to 100 right in the middle of the eggs. Running 101 to 101.5 on top. Do you think this would have hurt the batch of eggs any? It was only for literally 24hrs.

    Edited for spelling!

    Hatcheries run at 50%. I am sure they'll be fine.

    Its the average over the whole hatch that matters. Being off one day wont hurt.
