    So I guess this is day 18.....Lockdown day. We just put our eggs in lockdown- kind of weird to change from the standing program and remove them from the egg turner. Started with 12. 2 were not fertile. 1 started to develop but quit. The others all look good as far as I can tell. Excited and nervous/anxious! Trying to get the humidity up- added water, plugged vent holes. Wish us luck! Hoping for 4 Delaware, 2 Lavender Orpington, 2 blue/black/splash Ameraucana, 1 Lavendar Ameraucana to hatch by Wednesday (my son's 16th birthday) or Thursday. I have to work Friday all day so I hope they hatch before that!
