    I have 40 eggs in the Sportsman my brother loaned me. They are on day 15. I am getting about 2 doz. more eggs today, if it is OK to put them in with the others. I have read about staggered hatches, but will the incresed humidity the last 3 days hurt the new eggs?

    Thanks for answering all my silly questions!!

    So far mine has been fine I use the bottom of my sportsman as a hatcher. I rotate the eggs down and add more to the top shelf. After they hatch I just lower the humidity back down to 50%.
