    I set four eggs on September 26 (hatch day October 17) and then I added four eggs on October 3rd (Hatch day October 24th.) The question I have is what to do with the eggs set in October 3rd while the other eggs (set on September 26) are in lockdown? Lockdown starts tomorrow for the first set. How do I have the humidity high without hurting the other eggs and how do I turn the other eggs without hurting the ones on lockdown? Clearly I didn't think too much about this when setting the second batch. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I think it will require a second incubator but I could be wrong.
