Thread Starter 
Since my roo passed i placed a few of my eggs that my hens laid to keep his line alive. I might put in more. To get a better chance of hens. I also have duck and goose eggs in my bator still havent mastered hatching them. Since I placed eggs at different times i have no idea when they are suppose to hatch.

You probably should write the dates on the eggs as you put them in your incubator. Duck, goose and chicken eggs all have different incubation periods... so you need to know what day each one goes into lockown. I just did my first hatch and I numbered each egg so I could keep track of weight loss and marked each egg with the air sack size on candling days, plus the X and O for turning... they looked like bad art projects by hatch time. Anyway, you could try for a best guess date for each egg and mark them... hopefully that'll help determine your lockdown ranges. Good luck!

Yup lockdown is where you dont open the bator until all chicks hatch.

The random laced feathers are too cool!
