    I guess I was so excited that I didnt check the calendar good enough. I put my eggs in lock down yesterday and it should have been today. I didnt turn them yesterday. Should I turn them today or have I made a very big mistake and maybe loose them?
    Thanks

    They should be fine. Don't turn them. Lockdown is lockdown. Especially if today is lockdown day. You won't lose them. [​IMG] I put mine into lockdown early before.

    Quote:No problem, I actually usually put my eggs in the night before lockdown day. And I get the same hatch results as when I put them in 12+ hours later.
