    If there are two sets of eggs that are put in the incubator 12 hours apart can they be part of the same lock down?

    Also when do you remove the chicks from the incubator? Do you wait till all the eggs have hatched or is it cool to open the incubator and remove them quickly?

    Yes they can be part of the same lockdown.

    I always leave my chicks inside the incubator until they are fully dry and running around (usually 1-2 days).
