    I read you all talking about "lock down" and I knwow that is for an incubator but, does that mean I should check on eggs under a broody anymore? Coudl I kill them? Does that mama know not to turn them anymore after a certain day?

    I just left my broody alone with the eggs. She knows instinctively what to do. Don't worry about her.

    LOL! I am not worried about her, I'm worried about ME.....I've been wanting to see them as they develop....I was wondering if I would hurt them now that we are on day 20...
