    I place my eggs in the Incubator in the morning and Then on day 19 I place them in the hatcher in the morning as well. I usually will have 1-2 pipped or hatched before day 20. What breed are you incubating?

    I don't think it would. Damp would be okay I'd think. I'm not positive tho. Sorry I can't be more help.
