Increasing humidity for just one of the eggs?

    I have a stray bantam egg I put in on the 5th, I put another 25 australorp eggs in on the 11th, now what? Humidity is at 40% and I'm in a Hova-bator with the egg turner so I don't have a ton of room to work with. Maybe a deli cup on top of the other eggs? Right now the eggs is just resting in the 1" gap on the side. Any ideas?

    lightly mist the one egg that needs more humidity a couple times a day. That should make enough difference. Hope your hatch goes well.

    Be sure when you mist them that it is warm water....
