    LOL, I laugh because we see this question a lot and have so many different opinions. I am a hands-off-hatcher---when I go into lock down on day 18(chicken eggs) my incubator will NOT be opened again till day 22 for Nothing(water added through a vent hole if needed) unless they ALL hatch before then. I take them all out on that day/

    If you want to be a hands-off-hatcher just keep it closed.

    If you want to be a hands-on-hatcher you will need to learn when, what , how, etc to open, help, etc at the proper time.
