I've had them hatch on day 24-25, with my old incubator. It tended to run a little cold and had inconsistent temperatures. My first batch hatched from day 22-26. How many eggs made it to lockdown?
Only 2/5 made it to lockdown. I’m going to leave the other egg until tomorrow before I throw it but I didn’t see any movement when candled at day 22

this is the one that hatched at 12am

when it’s time to go into the heat box, will my 2, 3 day old chicks pick on it? If so how can I avoid that?

2-3 day difference should be fine, but put her in there when you can watch over them for a bit, just to be sure. If you have a heat lamp, you can divide the brooder with something so they can see, but not touch, while the little one finds its legs. If you have a heat plate, it's a little harder to divide them and still have heat for both.
