    I have eggs in one of my incubators that are currentky on lockdown, and there are other eggs in there that are due three days after the first ones. So that means the later ones will not be turned for aabout 3 days before there lockdown. Will that wreck them?

    Read a research article once that said not turning after day 14 will not negatively affect hatch results.

    ok thank you. One more question, I had one make a crack in the egg at about 6 in the morning and since than nothing has happened, is that normal?

    I can take a day or so sometimes... just sit tight and make sure the humidity is correct.
