Hi there!! Humidity spikes and drops do not affect the eggs on any given day. The average humidity over the period of the incubation is what is vital to the eggs and chicks. You can have high humidity all day (or low) and it won't kill the chicks. We control humidity to let the egg loose the proper amount of moisture during the incubation period. Your eggs are fine. I'm going to give you a link, hopefuly you'll find useful. It's the method I use for humidity control, but it explains the significance of it. I really think it'll help ease your mind and help you.
