I have 2 mallard eggs that did not start incubating at the same time nor can I figure out how far along they are. I have figured out that they are around 21 22 and maybe 25 0r 26 days. When should I go about doing the lockdown if they are at different stages and also need different temps

I have mallard eggs in incubator. Incubation did not start at the same time. I have no idea how many days we are at. My guess from candling one is around 22- 23 days? And the other 25-26?. One is definitely farther along. What do I do about lockdown and temp change? Movement in both eggs. But afraid to keep touching.

Id treat humidity and temp as if they both are on day 25 or 26, but keep rotating the younger one for 2 more days then it'll be in lock down too. I think thatd be your best bet

Thanks! Now my incubator does not have an humidity gauge. I have to put water in every 2-3 days. Any suggestions for accurate humidity? Again thanks I've been racking my brain for 2 day now trying to research this with no results.
