    Hey. I recently started my second batch of eggs and it's day 20 and I see nothing so I candled them and right now the're at a day 16 stage. What do I do? Should I keep them on lockdown?

    Are they moving? If they are, leave them be. If not, they've probably died.
    You should also verify your incubator's temperature if they are alive, as delayed hatch is a sign that it is too low.

    It isn't low the're just behind schedule. And as far as them being alive I don't know I just need to know if I should keep it in lockdown.
