    Ok so here is a calender of my hatching eggs...

    [​IMG]

    Instead of eggs going on lockdown on the 10th i put them in on the 12th... the day before they were suppost to hatch. did this mess everything up? and if i pu the SB (sea bright) eggs in today in lock down with the other eggs will that mess everything up tp becaause you cant open it... ahhhhh i have 2 incubators. 1 has lock down eggs and 1 has eggs not in lockdown. the one that isnt in lockdown has SB eggs and quail eggs. thats why i needed 2... i set the quail eggs on may 4th. Bob whites hatch in 23 to 24 days. i think i really messed up.

    I don't think it did. My last batch didn't even go into lockdown!! They hatched a bit early! I think you're fine! :)

    Just thought you would like to know that 5 of the quail eggs pipped!! two are about to pip and the other 3 I think died early or are infertile!! Some eggs should be hatching today!! :) Here's the post I just made if you want to see progress! :) https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/665218/eggs-are-hatching
