    So tomorrow was supposed to be lockdown, but I put the eggs into lockdown today. I usually would not have done this, but I got worried, because while candling the eggs, I saw one that was trying to get through the air cell. Because lock down was only one day away, and the one trying to hatch was still in the automatic turner. So, my question is, how long will it be before it has internally pipped. It should start peeping when it has right? Right now, it is about 8:30 PM. Should it be internally pipped by tomorrow Morning? Thx in advance.
