    I am new to incubating this is my first time. I have 2 eggs that are ready for lock down tomorrow. My question is that I have other eggs(10) that were added 5 days after my first two. How do I manage this with the change in the bator for the first two, will this affect my other eggs? What should I do?

    Humidity is 45 to 50. Sometimes jumps above 50 but not for long.

    I would keep it at 50 for those 2 eggs to give the other 10 the best chance.

    Rookie mistake Number Two: mixing clutches in the same incubator. [​IMG]
