    I would say today because you don't count the day you put them in.

    I would leave them out. When I go to lockdown with my silkie eggs I am at 99 to 100 and humidity is between 65 to 75 range

    If your humidity doesn't go up, I usually add a wet sponge to help bring the humidity up during lock down.
