Okay, so I have 6 eggs I am getting to put into lockdown and this is the first time I have ever hatched eggs in an incubator. They are duck eggs that I collected out of my yard. 3 were put in on the night of 3/9, 2 were put in on the morning of 3/10 and one was put in on the morning of 3/11. How should I proceed with lockdown??? One problem that throws a monkey wrench in this equation is that the incubator I used for the first 7 days ran up and down on temps and then once I moved them to a better incubator I acquired, they ran about 96.8 degrees for 3 days until I got an accurate thermometer to adjust the temp up to 99.5. So much stress happened to these eggs yet they still have lil ducklings kicking inside. Sunday night marks the end of 25 days for the first 3. Should I put them all in tomorrow night at the same time or maybe wait until Monday afternoon to put them in lockdown??? Or does it really matter that much if I put the first three in Sunday night, the next 2 on monday morning, and the last one on Tuesday morning??? Does it really kill the chicks to open the bator during lockdown, and what if I spray some water mist into the bator before I shut it to get the humidity to rise up quickly again??? As long as the humidity comes right back up again wouldn't it be okay to open the bator???
