    I currently have 3 eggs in my bator that my brody abandoned. I candeled tonight am going to put in lockdown tomorrow. Hatch date is the 31st. When I candeled tonight 1 egg looked like it was further along. Egg is really dark so I couldnt see anything but a little movement. The other 2 you can tell that the chicks still have some room to grow. Will it hurt to put those 2 in lockdown a couple days early. Have already lost 2 hatchs because they where staggared and I had to open the bator to turn the other hatch. I dont want to loose anymore.
