    Can I incubate eggs at 60%-65% humidity? I've been having trouble with my hatcher so every time I put eggs in there to hatch, they die. I put eggs in every week in my GQF incubator. Will it hurt the eggs that are incubating by hatching other eggs in with them at a higher humidity? Thanks

    I wouldn't do that. With the humidity that high the eggs aren't likely to lose enough moisture and will likely die and drown in the shell.
