I put my eggs in the incubator on Feb. 21st at 3 pm. Would my 18th day be 11th at 3pm to start lock down? Or the 10th at 3pm? I look at this different ways, and I need to decide safely and quickly. Also any much needed advice for a newbie doing the 18th day process and lock down is greatly appreciated in advance. Thanks!

Not sure what you mean about the turner hurting any babies/hatches in your other post.
For lockdown, at the end of day 18, stop the turner or turning and raise your humidity levels, then wait - it is not recommended you open the 'bator during the final 3 days, although some do to remove htaches. The level of humidity for hatch is up to you... Some people have better luck at 55%-60% other say 60%-70% some may even recommend going higher. Ask others who have the same 'bator and egg type what they have had the most success with. I am in the middle of my first hatch as well but have gathered all of this info from searching and reading these forums...
