    So my daughter lost her pet hen a few weeks ago and we did a emergency incubation. On July 14th with the last egg she hatched that day. Well ï started reading on this website and found out you could incubate eggs from the refrigerator. So we added those on July 17th. Ï need help figuring out if I can put them all in lockdown at the same time since I've started their incubation on different days. Please help[​IMG]

    Apparently you can put eggs on lockdown up to 5 days before their hatching day but I have never done it so I'm not sure if it 100% safe or not. :)

    If you only have one incubator you really don't have a choice. It's okay to stop turning after day 14 so that aspect of "lockdown" is fine.
