As in prison, nobody goes in or out during "lock down." That's when you are supposed to keep the incubator closed and NOT OPEN IT until the eggs have hatched. Every opening lowers humidity, and humidity is critical at the hatching stage - the membrane can so easily dry out and "shrink wrap" a hatchling.
