    Was expecting all my eggs to come the same day or one day apart. Instead six came three days later. So the others were in before these latter ones. Now, how do I go about figuring when is lockdown. I was going to split the difference and do it on the19th day of the first ones and hope that is not too late for them or too early for the others. What do you think or suggestions please?

    I think you will be fine with the plan of 19th day. I do this quite often and hatches seem to be fine. I hatch and incubate in my cabinent incubator so this goes on all the time.

    I think you should do lockdown for the others then, i dont think it will matter too much?
