hi,
I've had 4 silkie eggs in the incubator since the 6th. Today, without thinking, I added 3 layer eggs to it. About 6 hours later, I think about lockdown. Will it hurt the layer eggs to be on lock down for 2 extra days?

I have done it in the past and had no problems.
The only time that will be a problem is if you have to open the incubator to take chicks out when the others may be pipping.
My incubator is a little one, only holds 7 eggs. I have a big bowl setting over it. I'm hoping to be able to just lift the side of the bowl to get babies, without disturbing the others too much.
