    I live in Florida so the humidity right now is about 78%

    I have a hatch that is 14 days old and hatch that is 7.

    what should I do?

    If you can't get another incubator for the first hatch, I would raise the humidity for that hatch on day 18 and by the time the first one is done the second hacth should start hatching. I personally do not think the slightly higher humidity would hurt the second hatch. Good luck on your hatches!!

    basic rule :

    1-18 days : about 40-50% humidity
    19-21 days : about 60-80% humidity
