I'll at least plan it better next time, this has gotten too confusing hahah

It is confusing. I have three eggs that I set one at a time, one per day, starting two days after my others. When should they go into lockdown? Can they go in a little early or late, because if that's the case, I'll just average it out and do lockdown when the second egg would have gone...will this work OK? If only I hadn't set that third egg, this wouldn't be nearly as confusing!

Yours didn't work either? I had to toss 3 doz. TJ eggs. sad.png

I would lockdown them all on the date that the middle egg should be going in to lockdown so one will be a day late, one right on time and one a day early lol

Maybe the worker I talked to is right. The hens just get to look at a rooster through a fence.
