    I got some eggs 5 days ago and I am getting some eggs now and wondering if I can hatch out in the same incubator and would it effect the eggs I put in now when I raise the humidity for the other eggs last few says before hatch?
     
  2. Hi Gris'!
    Yes, the higher humidity can adversely effect the 2nd bunch of eggs.
    If you are going to 'stagger hatches' in an incubator, it would be best to have a separate hatcher (basically, another incubator) to move your Day 18 eggs into for hatching.

    Good luck!
