    For chicken eggs what is the best temp to have during lockdown? Do I lower, raise, or live it alone?

    The temperature is good. No changes at lockdown except bringing the humidity up some. I incubate at 40% to 50% and raise it to 65% to 70% at lockdown. Depending on where you live and the climate. Here we have high humidity. Some parts of the country have little humidity. It does affect incubation so some degree.

    I've never adjusted my temperature for lockdown and I have great hatches almost all of the time...
